    Clean v Filthy

    Clean v Filthy 13th Apr 17 at 9:40 AM
    Lately there seems to be lots of press about clean eating- low fat, low sugar, not processed, wholegrain etc.


    So as the nation prepares to gorge on chocolate I wondered what the "filthiest" (as in opposite to clean) meal you guys had ever had?
    I remember when I was a student the local market had "Chinese" style spare ribs that were so heavily coloured if you put them on a countertop they could stain it red for a week!

    I used to love the spare ribs I used to buy when I was a teenager in south London. I know what you mean about the red colouring.

    I've changed a lot now as I'm vegan, but I do still like a greasy Indian or Chinese meal.

    I had a craving for a pot noodle the other day!

    Deep fried pizza followed by a deep fried mars bar.
    That was pretty filthy.
    I had to eat a carrot afterwards to try and get rid of the greasy feeling inside

    I used to have a fondness for cheesy rice when I got home from the pub - stick some cooked rice, grated cheese and a load of black pepper in a bowl, mix well, microwave it until it's a hot, gooey mess and then mix in a load of ketchup.

    I remember I used to eat this on pay day.

    Large pizza - had to be some spicy meaty thing
    Garlic bread pizza
    Coleslaw
    Bag of Doritoes or tube of Pringles (depending on offers) and dip
    4 American muffins with a tub of Ben and Jerrys
    Washed down with a couple pints of beer.

    This is when I was 5 stone heavier and oblivious of my weight and size.

    Micro Chips were pretty grim. A ping meal when we got in after a night out.

    However I'll chip in (sorry) with a findus crispy pancake!
    Health food- actually I am not sure if it is even technically food!

    Anything topped with a ton of grated cheese. Most students go through a grated cheese phase.

    A meat & potatoe pie sandwich with a pint of tea.

    God, I'm starving for one now!

    I'm still partial to a microwave burger. Still better than a MaccyD.
    I don't like morning people. Or mornings. Or people.

    Donner Kebabs.

    I watched a tv show once where they tested the meat and there wasn't any lamb in any of the takeaway donner meat they bought, and one had an unidentified meat in it
