He goes on to say,
"almost everything you buy now is 97% fat free, yet we all put on weight."
"butter will kill you faster than margarine, but isn't butter better?"
"dark chocolate is good for you."
Except now someone has decided that it isn't.
(Probably because we're scarfing it down by the block instead of the recommended two squares a day.......)
But this is what got my attention;
Here's what Peter says about vegetables:-
"I have long maintained that it may be ideal but it is actually impossible for anyone to eat two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetable every day. Not even vegetarians can do that. Are there five vegetables?"
Are there five vegetables?
ARE THERE FIVE VEGETABLES?
Dear oh dear.
Peter, this is for you.
Oh, there's artichokes, asparagus, beans and beets and broccoli;
cauliflowers, cabbages, carrots, corn and celery;
capsicums, eggplant, endive, fennel, ga-ar-lic;
horseradish, jalapenos, lemongrass and lettuces.
parsnips, potatoes, peas, peppers, pumpkins;
radishes, spinach, swedes, turnips, and tomatoes.
watercress, watermelon, yams and zucchini.
Okay, I've included some fruits, and technically, some of those are herbs, but if you include them, they'll spice up your veggies.
And really, 2 plus 5 serves a day is easy.
Banana with breakfast, salad sandwich for lunch, stirfry or veg soup for dinner. Roasted veg if you prefer.
Mashed potato needn't be plain old potato. Mash together with almost anything else; pumpkin, garlic, carrot; the choice is yours.
Fruit for dessert.
As Jamie Oliver would say; Easy-Peasy.
(Yes, nasturtiums are edible.)
