What's old is new again? Bring on the "spek"! (What it's called in Slovak)

A generation or two ago they made (yummy) pie crusts with pure, homemade lard, baked breads full of wheat...but no HFCS, and used most ingredients from their unprocessed state. And lived into their 80's. Or in the case of my great-relatives galore, 90s and one 102. More and more, it seems the experts are showing that the old ways weren't so wrong after all.

Butter! Bacon! Eggs! Sounds yummy to me!

Don't tell me the experts have changed their minds again.

A lot of "good for you : bad for you" research is funded by the food industry ergo bound to be biased at the very least.

Everything in moderation. If they want me to keep eating wholemeal bread they'll have to put up with me spreading butter on it and I am certainly not going to go with the "healthy" bread and butter pudding recipe I once saw in a "healthy eating" article in a magazine - stoneground wholemeal bread, low fat margarine, skimmed milk, an egg and artificial sweetener. They had to give in with the egg but said it would be OK if you didn't indulge often. Often? - Never!

My local Whole Foods type market has a bakery with some very good looking pastries, cakes etc. but they often don't taste quite as good as the stuff from a local bakery/patisserie that doesn't stint on sugar/butter and other good stuff.

Guess where I'll buy when I want to indulge myself?
