Food For Thought

Here's food for thought as we approach Christmas. Researchers at Newcastle University compared 100 main meals from four TV chefs with books at the top of the bestseller charts to 100 supermarket ready meals, then compared all meals to nutritional guidelines set by the World Health Organization. They found that supermarket ready meals were generally healthier than the recipes of bestselling TV chefs, whose meals were heavier on the fats and saturated fats, which clog up our arteries as well as our sewers. The ready meals came from Asda, Sainsbury's and Tesco. The top TV chefs were Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and former model Lorraine Pascale shown here looking suitably Christmassy (CLICK). Also, the PDSA has issued a warning to dog owners for Christmas. No Christmas pud, rich fruit cake or human choccy treats! Grapes, raisins, sultanas, onions and chocolate are all poisonous to dogs and can cause death (CLICK)!
