Preach not to others …..

Preach not to others what they should eat, but eat as becomes you, and be silent. Epictetus (55 AD – 135 AD)

We are all being bombarded by advice from the media, celebrities, “experts”, and well meaning friends or family with their take on what is good for you and what isnt, how and when to eat or what to eat with what….you know the advice I mean.

I have a few simple guidelines for food –

  1. Dont eat more than you need for efficient functioning
  2. Take pleasure in what you eat – if you dont, dont eat it
  3. Experiment with food and flavours as the mood takes you
  4. If you ave a bad reaction to a particular food – avoid it
Of course there will always be exceptions to the guidelines such as buffet meals where getting value for money seems to break the first guideline, when the children cook for you manners dictate that the second be ignored, budgets and availability often derail any experimentation and Salmon is my undoing in the fourth.  But hey – it is my right and my choice to eat it and love it therefore I shall not bemoan the consequences nor put others off from its delights.
