It was the works Christmas lunch today. As the only employee I wasn’t about to cook the whole shebang just for myself. So I had one of these instead. It was rather nice.
Until recently I hadn’t had a Pot Noodle for something like twenty years and I probably shouldn’t have done for at least another twenty. Claims earlier this week that over 20,000 people in the UK die every year due to type 2 diabetes were shocking enough, as was the claim that eating as few as two takeaways a week runs an increased risk of developing the disease, especially for women. As a ‘born-again’ healthy eater on the TescoDiets £s for lbs campaign recently, I certainly know what I should be eating. And the tasty, simple menus linked to online shopping make all the usual excuses irrelevant.
But, well… It was jolly tasty I can tell you. And after all, it’s only once a year.
I think I’ll organise the office party next.
