    Ham off the bone will be Australian and taste better as its fresher but Turkey and Ham from a butcher will usually still contain preservatives, nitrates and sometimes MSG, unless specified- just ask your butcher and he will have the packaging it comes in - I get mine ( who happens to be my BIL!) to order me in nitrate free turkey ( Barossa fine foods) and nitrate free bacon for DH once a year xmas bacon breakfast!!! Or most organic shops stock nitrate free meats - they just don't last as long as the nitrates help preserve it

    That said I'm doing lamb souvlaki tonight and I'm so freaking excited
    I have tuna (tinned, so I guess that is processed) with salad for lunch most days but being utd I really want to cut back to maybe three times a week. I love veg fritata's, quiche's and roast vegie medley. Lamb is my absolute favorite meat!

    This thread is just making me hungry.

    I think tuna is fine in moderation (it's the mercury levels that you have to watch). But I just found out most tins are lined in BPA 😱😱😱.

    It's making me take this whole JERF (just eat real food) thing very seriously!

    I have 3-4 small cans each week for work lunches. a can is 95g and it's not all tuna, there's usually quite a bit of liquid in there.

    honestly it's such an easy lunch choice, and still healthier than processed deli meats/ham (which are a no-go anyway atm as I'm utd) that I can't be bothered worrying about it. I'm so vigilant with everything else, you need to give yourself a break sometimes!!

    I think the stress of obsessing about the safety of every item that passes your lips would probably be more detrimental that the minute chance it could cause some kind of incurable brain cancer.

    Just eat whole fresh foods, keep processed food to a minimum and exercise.

    I don't personally feel stressed. But if WHO says something, I'll pay attention.

    I'm not as laid back about minute chances of incurable brain cancers given the amount of people under 60 who are battling cancer in my life. There has to be an environmental cause for this and if I can avoid it, I will.

    Pretty much all cans except the expensive ones that specifically say no BPA on them from health food shops.
