Is it bad for health?Will this make me fat?

Only you will know: "I eat a lot of" means different things to different people. Some people think 6 crackers is a lot, while others think 26 is a lot. It is all about total caloric intake (in food and drink). Big crackers would have more calories than small crackers of the same type. Just be sure to use up as many or more calories as one eats, to avoid weight gain. ...Read more

How many exchanges are in stove top stuffing?

Exchanges??: If you are "into" the exchange plan of eating---it would the same as "stuffing" or one half cup = 2 starches and 1 fat. Personally, i don't believe in the "exchange" program. If it worked well, we would have more success with it--which we don't. The good about the "exchange" program is that it can teach patients about portion control. ...Read more

Does smoke from burnt food (no fire) cause health damage? Pan was left on stove. One year old in house

Does smoke from burnt food (no fire) cause health damage? Pan was left on stove. One year old in house

Not ideal: As basically all smoke has some carcinogens(cancer causing chemicals), granted usually in very small/trace quantities. In small amounts/short exposures, this isn't likely to create any problems. So I wouldn't worry too much, unless this is going to be a very frequent event. ...Read more

Fly eggs on food? I had food leftover on the stove and i noticed white grains on it, i took them off but i observed ate the food.. am i safe?

Probably fine: Remember once you eat something, it's exposed to very harsh conditions in your stomach. It's unlikely that anything concerning that you ate would survive. You should also realize that in other countries insects and their eggs provide a staple of food(yikes!), so it isn't necessarily unsafe to eat ... though it may not be very palatable to people here! ...Read more

Is it bad to overboil coconut milk on the stove if you heated it for 20-25 minutes?

Though more often: associated with dairy products, curdling can happen to any mixture where solids, such as fat and protein, are suspended in liquid. Coconut milk can curdle at high heat; it can turn into a thin, watery liquid mixed with white lumps. It can be avoided with gentler cooking and stirring. Curdled coconut milk is not dangerous..it can be returned to a less lumpy state by cooling and stirring. ...Read more
