Guess where I'm eating chicken-and-sausage gumbo?

Lori Midson

If I were Rachael Ray, I'd probably have to use a word like "yumbo" to describe this restaurant's gumbo, but thankfully I'm no Rachael Ray -- and nor would I be caught dead using "yumbo" to portray anything, including this lackluster take on a New Orleans favorite.

Can you guess where I'm eating?

I'm sure that there are plenty of legitimate reasons to argue for a vegan lifestyle, but this has to be about the dumbest one I've ever heard.  Trichinosis is virtually nonexistent in the U.S., infecting only 0.013% of pigs -- mostly home-raised ones -- causing about 12 infections per year.  Neither it nor salmonella could possibly be found in a long-cooked stew like gumbo.

You do realize that the vast majority of foodborne illness in the U.S. is caused by plants right?  Beef, game, pork, and poultry are responsible for 22%, whereas 51% are caused by plant products (23% from leafy greens alone). 

I love great produce as much as I love great meat, and would never argue that people should stop eating vegetables because of the higher risk of foodborne illness.  That would be stupid.
