diet myths and common sense

It’s good to find a fellow blogger that is on the same wavelength about quality food (particularly on a tight budget) and unhelpful food advertising whose prime objective is profits.    Quill.com publishes an informative image which can serve as a reminder of the pitfalls to avoid.

healthy diet and poverty

Unplugged from food corporations I’ve heard some alarming tales from friends who work with people trapped in poverty and debt. The worst cases, due to the tax and benefits nightmare orchestrated by successive governments, are all people working full-time.

Olympics junk food taste test – learn to (enjoy) cooking!

There’s an entertaining article about food corporations attempting to cash in on the 2016 Olympics, maybe because they believe we’re daft enough to think eating advertised, processed, devitalised ‘food’ in front of the TV will turn US into Olympic athletes by some mysterious process of induction. The author is less scathing than me about fast … Continue reading Olympics junk food taste test – learn to (enjoy) cooking!

The ever-growing (and conflicting) ‘expert’ advice about what to eat, and what not to eat, is now creating problems for women in their 30s, 40s and beyond.

Recent shopping trips have made two facts very plain:  1. Many customers, much younger than I, look extremely physically unfit/unwell.  2. Many customers look and sound bewildered when deciding what to buy  They would be less vulnerable to the mischief of food corporations’ TV advertising and packaging if they had a list.
