    I've kinda gone off using all tree root stock as a food source. I still have it but the quantity is much reduced.
    and I've gone off all forms of food preserving, so stuff like pickles or beetroot or even dried fruit or cool stored fruit.
    I think it's all crap!

    I've noticed some people are taking a dried bit of fruit and baking that material in the oven and serving that stuff up for food.
    that dired sultana has turned into crystal at that point. it's a ROCK.
    that's no good for food.

    an egg is interesting as a food source.

    how much cooking of the egg becomes too much cooking as a food source?

    I've had some eggs which I swear a nuclear bomb wouldn't be able to break that egg into small useable pieces.
    but, the question is, is egg in it's raw state a useable food source?
    what does the body do with that material?
    can you run up the hill faster?
    for more times in the day?

    some people soak the egg is soy sauce for decades and then eat the product.
    that's just for the SOLE purpose of taste and for NO real performance benefit. wouldn't You agree?

    What's the deal with vegemite then? Isn't that an all aussie thing?

    Also, what's it like? Is it like a spreadable mash of vegetables or what?

    a spreadable mash of vegetables. that's funny! I like that saying. ;)

    it was the scrapings of the bottom of the beer barrels back in the day.

    just use it very sparingly and have lots of butter on that bread too. the melted kind. ;)

    It's owned by the americans now anyway.

    they're pushing 'pulled pork' and pulled chicken burgers at the moment with coleslaw. so get your head around that 1! ;)

    mini burgers which are $15 each is a new thing around here too. there's NO shame from where I'm from.

    I cant stand the stuff. Its essentially food paste made from leftover brewers' yeast and a few other random ingredients.

    Vegemite, it wrecks sao's and makes the worst worms when squeezing vitabrit's, also manages to destroy toast.

    Yep, I cant stand the stuff......the kids love it.

    I hate Vegemite. And Marmite. Stalactites are pretty cool.

    Egg on the burger is usually called a hangover burger around here.

    The other one that has hit a few menus around here, in the last couple of years, is a burger with bacon, and peanut butter on it. Sounds bad, but it's really good. :yesway:

    Nothing beats Vegemite on toast in the morning with a cup of tea/coffee. Beetroot on a burger I can take it or leave it.

    You can get an egg on your burger at fatburger in the states. The real aussie thing to have is the egg n bacon sandwich from the truck stop, gotta be buttered on the outside though

    Even though most Australian food indeed started life somewhere else, it's mostly changed so much that it is uniquely Australian. Fish n chips is a great example, or steamed dim sims, and of course the chicken scnitzel sanga

    If you are going there, then the humble Chiko Roll is the winner.

    How have the Aussies changed Fish and Chips to make it unique?

    Vegemite sounds like something you catch from the beds @ Motel 6. :ugh:
