This is the week where I was enlightened.
This was the week I was informed that vegetarians suffer with an eating disorder. I wonder why vegans were not mentioned.
I also learned that, with the best will in the world, a works canteen on a major construction site, could not provide workman-sized meals (plates piled high) with free range and organic food at a price workmen would pay. “With the best will in the world” said the buyer, “my budget does not allow for it”. Her canteen prices would have to rise by at least £3 per meal.
Meantime, the workmen are being educated in what constitutes healthy eating while away from the comforts of home. Their menu choices indicate they have been giving the lower cholesterol nosh a fair try, but, very definitely at a cost they feel balances with their expenses and what’s left in their pockets.
