Much has been written recently about the healthy virtues of eating more fruit and vegetables. “Five a Day” has been the slogan for the last few years, although all the evidence is that not many people manage to reach that goal. Now the latest Government advice is that “Seven a Day” would be a better target!

That’s quite a challenge, but let’s get started:-
An apple a day. Easy to do, easy to buy and does not deteriorate quickly, so a weekly shop will do. Could also be the saving of the Health Service, if an “apple a day keeps the doctor away”. There will be less pills taken and lower admissions to hospital.
Also no cooking involved so helps save the planet in terms of energy conservation. Several virtues into one.
Don’t peel the apple because the skin contains most of fibre and that’s good for you. However, be careful, if you no longer have your own teeth, you may have to chop the apple into little pieces so you will miss the “crunch” of the advertising campaign.
Oh, and don’t eat the Union Jack sticker 🙂
Eating more fruit is already beginning to transform my world.
