At school, it was suggested that the little salt containers from tables were removed...

Next day, someone had dumped a 20Kg sack of the stuff on one of the counters... School food without salt is just a mix between mystery meat and cardboard.

Yes, this drive to rid the world of salt is highly irritating. The most egregious violation of basic human decency is when kitchen staff who're cooking food are forced to stop adding it. Salt added during cooking not only improves flavour a great deal, but also vastly reduces the amount required after. Every 1 grain added during would need 5 added after to achieve the same level of saltiness, so the claim goes. So all that happens is people on the tables add way more salt than they otherwise would have.

They're either extremely damaged or super-kidneys, I still haven't figured out which. I consume many litres of liquids per day (I'd guess 5L a day is about my normal), require at least a pint of liquid with most meals, and consume fairly large quantities of salt.

Bread without salt is dire.
Pastry without salt is tasteless.
Cheese without salt is pointless.

If you nosh down 6 packs of crisps a day, then there is a problem, otherwise, leave my food alone.

Breakfast most mornings = a banana

Next to no prep work involved, isn't messy, tastes nice (admittedly not bacon nice) and keeps me going until lunch time.

Protip: cook a few rashers to a crisp the night before, then stick em in the microwave for 20 seconds whilst you're buttering your bread/toast in the morning. Dollop of your chosen condiment and out the door with it in your hand.

Prep time: 6 minutes whilst cooking dinner/tea/supper the night before
Time taken: under 1 minute.

Not that I ever do this. I can't put anything in my mouth other than a rollie and some coffee for the first few hours after I get up.

Yeah, I've still got my stockpile of old HP, figure it should get me through to 2014. After that...I'll just have to find a new way to live my life, if you can call it living.

I do agree that some snacks have had a larger than required mass of salt in them, however honestly the main culprits have been ready meals, and you can do what you want to them as far as I'm concerned because they're not real food. It's when I go to a restaurant and my food tastes less good because of a lack of salt, or I go buy some crisps and all of them are proudly proclaiming that their salt and vinegar crisps are now reduced salt, I mean, wot?

I don't mind healthy options available for people, but health fascism bugs the hell out of me, especially because I do live reasonably healthily as it is, and damnit I shouldn't be deprived a tasty whatever every now and again just because so many people live on rubbish food and ready meals their whole lives.

I can recommend this as a potential alternative to HP. Try it, it's delicious. I think Tesco do it as well.

Morrisons do at least, yeah, I'm going to do a taste test once my stocks of 2.5g/100ml HP run out. Still got about 6-8 litres of the stuff left though so I should be OK for a bit.

The Tiptree Ketchup is infinately better than Hinez.

Having said that, the special edition Hinez with balsamic vinegar was amazeballs, but they stopped making it.

Are you actually admitting in a public space to using red sauce Mankz?

Perfectly. I'm fairly certain you're not at Eton anymore which means you must be over the age of 18, and so definitely an adult, and yet admitting to consumption of red sauce. This is puzzling.

Ketchup no longer holds a place with any of my foodstuffs. Balsamic is awesome though, especially on a salmon bagel.
