Hi, I'm Steve, the owner of The Fingerpost Pub and Eatery.
I enjoy doing my research to try and contradict all of this bad press about so called unhealthy foods. I believe from my research that everything is good for you and everything is bad for you!! Let me explain...
Below is an artile from the Daily Mail earlier this year...
Bacon, sausages, eggs, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, black pudding... if that's what you had for breakfast, scientists say you've chosen the healthiest way to start your day.
No, seriously. Hot on the heels of yesterday's chocolate-is-good-for-you findings, researchers say a full English breakfast is better for the heart, waistline and blood pressure than carbohydrate-rich cereals, breads and pastries.
It is thought that a fried breakfast sets up the metabolism for the rest of the day, making it easier to burn off other meals and snacks.
Any meal can be enjoyed as part of a healthy diet it's just knowing how and when to eat it. The Press are all too quick to tell you what you can't eat and believe me if you conformed to it you would starve in a week!
Our diets have actually improved over the last 150 years, for example we no longer put lead in our food which is something the victorians used to do in order to colour some foods!! The reason for the obesity in Europe is not what we eat it's how much we eat. Our life expectancy is a lot longer that is was only years ago and if you are below 30 now scientists believe you stand a good chance of living past 100!
Remember to just enjoy what you eat, just don't eat so much and get plenty of variety. That's all there is to it!!
See you soon
