Random question(s) for you - how much do you spend on mushrooms in a week? (as individual/household) Also, if you answer - are you a meat-eater or not?
For consumption as physical nutrition, not mind expansion.
Hi, I'm Nairn, I eat meat meat and spend about £3-4 a week on mushrooms for myself and my family.
- This.. didn't help.
In fact the typography makes my stomach churn.Nairn
- Then you must know you can add raw shrooms even in your salad.grafician
- Also this book is a must read these days, but hey, not everybody has a clue about their eating habits...grafician
- +1 graf this book is brilliant.MrT
- Is that four fonts there, or five?Nairn
- This.. didn't help.
I probably use a pack of mushrooms once every couple of weeks at most. They aren’t as regular in my cooking, but now that you mention it I feel like I could incorporate them more. I guess $2 a week?
- And yes we eat meat. Not much steak.monospaced
- Thank you.Nairn
- I hear you on steak. I fucking love beef, but it's a treat for us. Steak is a very rare treat for me... . I kinda like it that way.Nairn
- Same here. Burgers once in awhile, sometimes I make a beef stir fry.monospaced
Probably $5 a week on mushrooms. Meat-eater here.
I get them every time i go shopping. No idea what they cost.
Been thinking about converting my shed into a mushroom farm, incidentally..
- Thank you.
'Ovo-lacto vegetarian' is interesting to me - up until 2 weeks ago when I had a chat with a Sri Lankan, I thought that was just vegetarianNairn
- I'd always wondered at the 'egg-free' cake shop down the road.Nairn
- Ah. Yeah, i eat my hens’ eggs (which i know are cruelty-free) and enjoy cheese now and thenscarabin
- Yeah, that's what I don't get. Eggs can be morally free?Nairn
- I was banned from a vegan sub for asking about eating cruelty-free eggs. It makes their brains misfire when they think about it and they just get angryscarabin
- I admit i’m kind of a jerk for eating cheese and using leather but i haven’t researched that stuff enough to turn me off of it yet. Probably on purposescarabin
- Doesn't matter how vegan you are, all those other cunts are eating beef and generating leather.Nairn
- Myceilial leather;s a thing though, eh?
- Yeah but the right leather jacket can be life changing & those substitutes never come close to recreating the look and feel and smell. And they don’t age wellscarabin
- Thank you.
Maybe $2.50-5/week? It's very dependent on what meals we're planning on making any given week. Also meat eaters,
As I live with more 5 adults and a 20 month old I'm gonna put it like this:
I'm not a meat eater and living alone I would use two packs of mushrooms spending 5€ total a week – actually would buy every three days.
With my housemates 3 of them eating meat we spend like three boxes of mushrooms making 7,50€ total.
I'd also be interested to hear from people who do NOT buy mushrooms each week.
Just, so when the time comes, we can take you out back and get rid of you.
Seriously - how many of you never even think about buying mushrooms over a week?
Do you suspect some kind of correlation?
Sometimes if there's different sorts of mushrooms I make a risotto so I'll buy more.
I also use them quite often raw in salads.
I'm a pescatarian.
I buy a box of regular, brown mushrooms every other week probably. about $2 USD per week on average.
sometimes I'll splurge on some fancy mushrooms from the co-op or the farmers market, and it's like buying a piece of fish. roasted lion's mane mushrooms are great!
Meat eater, usually spend around 3 euros a week, more when I buy portobellos or porcinis
Spend about 12 aud a week. There is an opt in in my local veggie box service for a local mushrooms growing set up. Depending on the time of year I get a wide variety. Mostly shiitake, oyster (grey, yellow and pink) lions mane and they throw in some that I have no idea what they are. I’ll forage for them occasionally too.
at least 3x a week... between $3 - $6USD each time
... no meat
Thanks all! Seems like Most people I've asked spend about 2-3 local credits a week on mushrooms and people who are vegetarian/vegan or Just Into Fucking Mushrooms spend quite a bit more than that.
Had someone suggest 20 local credits and THEN if they go to a farmers market, the same again on psh varieties. Mind you, they're quite successful... :)
- Posh, not pish :)Nairn
- I didn’t realize they were such a staple for folks. Felt like my interest was above averagescarabin
- I thought we ate quite a lot of mushrooms, but it's basically just two large punnets a week. If I were a Veggie, I could see that going up massively.Nairn
4 at home, 3 omnivore (meat eaters) and youngest daugther is ovo lacto vegetarian.
2 to 3€ in mushrooms a week, mainly champignons.
During autumn and winter, we can spend 10/20€ a week on boletus mushrooms, but one week a month or two, it depends on the price or if we can get them from friends or during our weekend hike.
We cook them with eggs, rice or pasta... But, the boletus are superb roasted on the charcoal grill (or in the grill or in the oven).
I want to add that I find shrooms essential in my diet.
Would love to eat more raw but they're a bit heavy sometimes.
I use them in pasta, salads, in omelets for my little one, with green peas stew, with roasted seitan, also in the oven filled with different things like shrimps, spinach or cheese; sometimes I grab one and just eat it like that sometimes with a pinch of salt.
fucking love mushrooms!
BF hates mushrooms :(
