If the meat is good and has been properly handled then it should be healthy to eat it raw. At home, my 2 and 6 year old often eat their steaks blue (30 sec sear on each side, raw and cold in the middle). Some restaurants in the U.S. won't even cook them that way. 
I've tried both 100% AP and 100% bread without noticeable differences... although I didn't do an accurate side-by-side comparison. 
I bought some einkorn flower, just made this recipe, I'll bake it tomorrow night!!!
+1.  You won't find a non-stick pan that lasts longer than 2 months if you wash them in the dishwasher. I would pick stainless steel or carbon steel (or one of each) and forget about the dishwasher. They'll last you forever. 
Zest the lemon (organic) for example with a microplane and stuff some of the zest in the cavity, and some under the skin, between the beast meat and the skin, even between the thigh meat and the skin.

Difficult to handle, but that's the result you saw in my photograph - quite good, although the crumble was a bit sticky. I then used the original unadapted Jim Lahey recipe which is much easier, with AP flour and with the ratios provided by @petalsandcoco (1 1/2 cup of water instead of 1 5/8) and the dough was much better, the results...
I hate to hear that. I hope the food and other pleasures in your life will help you go back up. The chicken noodle soup looks very good, this is what I should eat right now (I'm sick with the flu). How did you like the tarragon? It's an acquired taste... I personally am not a huge fan, so the rare times I use it I do so with parsimony.
