Eat like the English
Apparently about 4000 lives a year could be saved if the Scottish and the Welsh ate "more like the English".
Sensationalist and hardly groundbreaking, as the article goes on to define that as simply eating more fruit and veg.
As a person living in Wales, I tend to agree. I know more than a handful of fully grown adults who flat out refuse to eat 95% of vegetables I can think of. But what's behind this? On one of my grouchier days, I would simply call them childish....but even children eat vegetables!
We need to get people excited about vegetables again.
Here's a link to a fantastic broccoli stir-fry to get you started!
