Food support

I wanted to start this thread as I think I may have exhausted google searches on food hygiene throughout my life and need to give it a break. Essentially I am very aware of food hygiene and sometimes get myself caught up in the right things to do in relation to cooking, storing, and reheating etc. I often find myself cooking or buying something that I don't eat because I'm worried about something and often put myself on the 'beige diet'.. oh aaand google just confuses me.

I was hoping to use this thread to ask generic questions about food that I make and eat and to talk about these things to also gather a bit of advice from normal people?

Thank you

What's the beige diet? Isn't that unhealthier than eating things that are out of date?

So the 'beige' diet is eating things like biscuits, toast etc, that I feel are a bit safer

(I mean, this is just stupid. Poor dietary choice is the no.1 cause of death in the UK, with a large proportion of the population being malnourished (due to insufficient nutrients/vitamins/minerals) because they don't eat a varied diet of healthy foods.)

So are you saying this is a stupid question? I'm confused by your reply.

What is your question, OP?

So you have an anxiety issue around food safety? Have you ever sought professional help for it?

Are you asking for a place for 'what do ordinary people do if.... the yogurt was left on the counter overnight/the biscuits are past the date' etc?

You can do that, if you are worried about it. I'm pretty hot on food safety issues- I don't follow the advice, but I know what the advice is!

Yes as mentioned above just looking for a bit of advice - I assumed that's what this was for. I imagine I do over worry a little bit but I am within the norm levels of anxiety around something that is manageable.

Just thought I'd try Mumsnet for advice and a chat about it

Is there something specific you worry about? Food poisoning?

Or this kind of scenario: You cook a chicken on Sunday. Eat some of it cold on Monday. But still have some left. If you then make a curry can you freeze it? And then reheat it? Or could you freeze the left over chicken and defrost it and then make a curry and freeze it again?

Yes, you can talk about that here. People can jump in and discuss it.

Or you could post a new thread every time you have a question. Up to you.
