Is it safe to eat chicken every day?

When it comes to non-vegetarian food, people often think that eating meat on a daily basis is not good. This belief is partially wrong. According to health experts, it is necessary to understand the mode of cooking the meat and the type of meat you are eating. If we talk about chicken, the variations loaded with spices, cream and butter are definitely not worth a daily diet. The ideal way to get the maximum benefits of chicken is to either grill it or roast it. Full of nutrients, the tender meat is also known as the powerhouse of energy.

Do you need to wash mushrooms before eating them?

It depends. Cultivated mushrooms can be brushed off with a dry or damp cloth and be completely fine. Wild mushrooms, on the other hand, often require a more thorough cleaning, and generally should be washed. Either way, there’s no harm in rinsing them.

Mushrooms are very absorbent, so the long-held wisdom has been if you wash them, they'll soak up all that water and lose their flavor. However, several informal studies have disproven that, so rinsing your mushrooms is probably not going to ruin any recipes, especially if you rinse them before you cut them up and dry them in a salad spinner.

One scenario in which you’d want to avoid rinsing your mushrooms, though, is if you're serving them raw. The water can cause some discoloration—nothing to worry about, except that it’s not exactly pretty. Cook’s Illustrated recommends brushing them with a dry toothbrush.

1. classic galactosemia, also known as type I, is the most common and most severe form of the condition.

Is it ok to eat frozen cooked orange chicken after expiration date?


It should not do you any harm but the taste will go


You should have no problem, I would not let it go 1 month past the date, how i cook it is have it in a Pyrex dish and bake it at the temperature. instead of adding the Orange sauce at the very end, I have the time a few minutes shy and add in the sauce and put it in for the last few minutes so it gets that candy like crunch, but don't have it in too long or in a oven too hot the sugars will burn and turn bitter.

Can you die from eating dog feces?

Feces are just what is left over after an animal digests its food. It's not the feces themselves that could kill you or make you sick but the bacteria that quickly grow in feces. If you get infected with bacteria and you are not treated, you could die. The same is true of getting infected by bacteria from other sources. Dogs sometimes eat feces (they like cat feces, probably because the cat's food has a lot of protein in it) but they don't get sick so easily, because they have antibacterial substances in their digestive system. Humans don't have such protection. So it's not advisable to eat dog feces, even if you wouldn't die from it.

Your question reminds me of the late actor and drag queen Divine. He put dog feces in his mouth in one of his movies, Pink Flamingos. He did not die, but he described it as one of the most humiliating and terrible experiences he ever went through. He realized how low his self-esteem had sunk that he allowed himself to do this.

Drinking Water

Is sterile water for irrigation safe for babies to drink?

Irrigation water may be potable, but it is not sterile. When in doubt, boil the water for baby.

Answer 2: Unless you are in a dire situation such as a third world country or lost in the woods (which I doubt as you are using the internet) Do not give an infant or child any water that is not from a safe potable tap (such as your kitchen water faucet, if the water in your area has been deemed safe for human consumption), or from a factory sealed, drinking water.

Can cream that has gone sour be used?

I like buttermilk and just sour milk, and it has never made me ill. Butter used to be made from cream that had gone sour, by churning to make the butterfat stick together into butter. The sour milk that was left is called "buttermilk" which I think tastes as good as yoghurt which is another form of sour milk. I just enjoyed a litre of full-cream raw milk that had gone sour about five hours ago. YumYum.

Is it safe to heat soup in the can will it contaminate the soup?

If the can is metal it wont matter if the soup is contaminated because metal + microwave = fire. And if it was in there long enough it probably would contaminate the soup but even if it didn't, don't microwave it out of the can.

May sound obvious but open it first otherwise BANG

I have heated soup and other canned foods over a fire while camping. You have to watch to see if the can has a plastic lining and it doesn't become damaged while heating.

Canned foods are typically heat processed after sealing in the can so as long as it is controlled there will not be a problem.

Is a mushy tan chicken liver safe to eat?


I'm assuming that the liver is fresh and was properly handled, kept cold, etc.

Livers vary in colour and texture so some will be deep red and others tan and softer. A lighter liver colour tends to mean there is more fat in the liver, which is why fois gras is quite pale. It can be affected by what the chicken is eating.

Can eating brown lettuce make you sick?

It's a possibility, but as a preventative measure, you should never eat it. You can remove the brown parts and still eat the parts of the lettuce that are still green and crisp.

Lettuce turns brown due to oxidation; water will usually collect at the bottom of the bag during this process. When this happens, it becomes food for mold and that in turn can make you sick.

Of course a little browning is natural and is unrelated to mold. When preparing a salad in advance, handling the lettuce and breaking it into smaller pieces with your bare hands is recommended because using a metal knife causes the lettuce to brown even faster.

Also, storing the lettuce in a tightly closed container helps to keep it fresh.
