Well worth reading and acting upon, 25 Mar. 2013
An excellent read - a truly sensible, no-nonsense, relevant-to-everyone approach that dissects the content, origin, treatment and health value of all types of food in your kitchen and is highly likely to make you change at least a few habits. I've since gone as organic as possible (and where affordable) and am unlikely to buy margarine, packaged meat or most cereals from a supermarket any more. Leaped straight out to a farm shop and have switched to organic milk, butter, cheese & bread, Muscovado sugar, sea salt and cold-pressed oils. As well as obvious common sense warnings such as avoiding fizzy drinks, ready meals and refined basics at all costs, key messages are to favour organic, GM free and free range products, buy from the UK wherever possible and recognise that a few extra pence/pounds (depending on how far you choose to take her advice) each week is worth the investment now when you consider the likely cost of poor health in later years as a result of sticking to over-processed, refined, convenience foods soaked in added sugar, salt and water and additives.
