1 in 5

According to a bit of paper I was sent while I was in Switzerland, only 1 in 5 adults in Nottingham eats healthily.

That’s shockingly low. And it’s probably right. It certainly includes me.

Garage sandwiches and takeaway food feature all too highly in the food I eat in the average week. And although I understand nutrition pretty well, I still can’t convince myself to eat an apple rather than toast. 5-a-day shouldn’t be a hard thing to achieve, and yet the days in which I do it are fewer and further between than they should be.

UPDATE: I’ve just eaten a raw carrot, an apple and a banana, so I’m feeling slightly more virtuous now. But I’m having to throw away most of the last two weeks’ veg boxes because it’s quietly rotting in the fridge.
