|Chickpeas in ajvar filmjölk sauce with roasted parsnips and carrots|
Food Diary (October 13, 2011)
Breakfast: Rolled oats with coconut, raisins, sunflower seeds and flax seeds
Lunch: Chickpeas in ajvar filmjölk sauce with roasted parsnips and carrots
Dinner: Chicken on skewers, crostini’s etc, muesli
Ajvar and filmjölk (cultured milk) worked really well together. This reminded me of some Indian dishes that combine yogurt, tomato puree and spices. I need to remember this combination since its too delicious to forget. Other than chickpeas it would work really well with chicken, fish and certain vegetables.

On Tuesday I summarized an article on the alleged mislabeling of pork by Walmart in China. I mentioned that there could be other issues and interestingly enough Huffington Post has an article today titled “Walmart China Closures May Be Motivated More By Politics Than 'Green Pork’”. Maybe the truth will start to come out, or maybe it won’t. I think we have enough information to draw our own conclusions.
Even more interesting, Huffington has two more articles on food mislabeling, and these incidents of mislabeling are actual. In one instance almost a half-ton of turkey filets were mislabeled as "Bacon-Wrapped Steak". Turkey filets would look quite different from bacon wrapped steak but I guess manufacturers are not willing to accept liability if a customer does not notice the difference and buys it anyway.
In another case, Kroger is recalling ice cream because it may contain peanuts not mentioned on the label. I’ve seen many labels that say ‘may contain traces of nuts’ even though the product may not be related to nuts. Manufacturers write this just to be on the safe side. I also saw a bag of peanuts which was labeled ‘may contain traces of nuts’. Hopefully it contained more than just traces.
So the first issue of Walmart allegedly mislabeling could be a political issue. We will probably never know whether pork was actually mislabeled or not. The other two cases are actual and these occurred in the US. These are reported cases, many go unnoticed. Perhaps for customers a solution is to have an open mind when it comes to eating!
