Quoting Wocca

Vegemite is the registered brand name for a dark brown, salty food paste mainly used as a spread on sandwiches and toast, though occasionally used in cooking. Popular in Australia and New Zealand, Vegemite is semi-jokingly called one of Australia's national foods. It is seldom found elsewhere.

We actually have it here. But no thanks. Its too much of an acquired taste really. I'll have a Tin Tam anytime.

Is it just me or are very few people concerned with their health?

Hmm...

A glass of fruit juice at home before leaving for work.
20 mins later at workplace, fresh milk and muesli+oat+fruits+nuts combo.

Well, that's for most of the workdays.
Somedays, have 2 half-boiled eggs, Chapati (Indian bread) and Milo (Nestle's chocolate malt drink).

On Sundays, a variety of different local food every week (Roti Canai, Nasi Lemak, noodles, etc).

Is that healthy enough, Bren?

By healthy I do not so much mean preventing death and living years and years with out a cough or visit to the hospital, I am talking about the lethargic people of this world.

When a person eats the worst "food" out there, it tells me that there is little to no amount of caring from that person. Caring for yourself is one thing, but as an extension of that, caring for others as well. Caring for future generations of people that will have to pay the price of our sick world. Caring for the ecosystems that support all of us and everyone to follow.

And from that, it makes little sense to me. How could a person not care about their effects on the world around them? Not care about the future, not only our of our species but of all the species that allow us to live in the first place?

Sure enough, if a person wants to eat the worst "food" going and die of the latest trademarked and token illness then by all means I can not stop you. But I will question you, and try to understand it.

Can or will someone answer? Does is all surmount to apathy towards existance and life?

Honestly,
Brendan

Brendan, you're confusing me with your stand on the health issue. In the morning or night person thread you have stated that you find yourself tired a lot, to me that suggests you're not looking after yourself in some way or another. Finding yourself tired a lot is usually due to a poor diet, or not gettting enough sleep. Just wondered if you could clarify exactly what message you are trying to get across.

Jared,
What exactly is "Tin Tam"? Sounds like it might be your version of our "Spam", (pork meat product in a can).

I generally don't eat breakfast, because I get up late and head straight for work. But on days that I do get up early enough for breakfast, I'll usually just have some toast and tea, or even a McDonald's Egg McMuffin.

BTW...

Mr. Isa breakfast: coffee (w/milk & sugar), either rice cakes, bagel w/ cream cheese, more coffee, Pop Tarts, dry cereal (Cheerios or Chex), beer, banana bread, and more coffee, followed by more beer.

Mrs. Isa breakfast: coffee (black), oxygen (not out of a tank, thank you).

Unless we're travelling - then it's the buffet line with bared teeth and forks in hand, or the local version of breakfast for that country.

Coffee - MUST HAVE COFFEE - as most times we're up at 4:30am. Not because we're old and insomniacs, but work starts early.

Good call Dave, in the morning and night thread I was meaning that I will sometimes stay up late and then have to get up early.

Eating bad food doesn't necessarily mean that one does not care about oneself. I care about myself enormously, but I have a weakness for tasty food; it just happens that most tasty foods (at least what I consider as tasty) are the less healthy variety. I don't have breakfast not because I don't care about myself, but because I often don't sleep well at night and it's more important to me and my body to get that extra 15 to 50 minutes of sleep than to have something to eat. You shouldn't judge a person ("uncaring") based on ONE single behaviour ("eating unhealthy food").

Besides, everybody cares about different things, Brendan. Just because you don't care about one thing doesn't mean you don't care about other things. For instance, I admit that I don't usually eat well and I'm a total junk food junkie, but it doesn't mean that I don't care about the environment (I recycle religiously). You shouldn't be so quick to judge others based on ONE aspect of their life.

Unless I misread your post, in which case I apologize, and you should elaborate on how you went from "bad eating habits" to "not care about their effects on the world around them; not care about the future, not only our of our species but of all the species that allow us to live in the first place".
