I have eliminated Palm Oil from my diet and, for those of you that have done the same, you will know that so much of the processed foods, in the supermarket, contain it. Lets not beat around the bush, if you removed all the processed food from a supermarket, they could downsize considerably. What you’d be left with is a green grocer, a butcher, and a dairy, which is all we really need. That said, I would find it very hard to give up my chocolate, but I have found some without palm oil. I don’t claim to know all the ins and outs of the palm oil industry, but my biggest concern is the effect on the orangutans.
So, one of the many foods that contain palm oil is stuffing. I do love stuffing with my roast dinner, but I couldn’t find any without palm oil, so I looked to make it from scratch, and I found this great recipe on Housewife Confidential. Why, oh why, didn’t I do this years ago…it’s ridiculously easy to make and it’s delicious!
I have tried a few variations of this recipe, such as adding cashews, or peanuts, different herbs, and my kids love it too…it’s rare for everyone to agree on something in our house! But, best of all…it makes a large batch, so pop the leftovers in the fridge, and it’s delicious cold, with a dollop of Piccalilli. Guess what I’m having for lunch today 😉
