It is becoming increasingly muddled about what products are good for us and what aren’t. We note the concerns about sugar as well as processed and red meat. There are numerous delicious ‘natural’ or lightly processed products that are seen as ‘unhealthy’ in some way, butter being one because of the fat content and bacon being another because of its carcinogenic potential. However, we use these so-called unhealthy products in a sensible, restrained way. Moderation, balance and variaty are important: if you put a dash of sugar or cream in a savoury dish, eat a little less of the dessert that follows. There are numerous products we try to steer clear of, especially highly processed foods, so-called ‘lite’ or ‘diet’ products and those with questionable ingredients. While foods that have a high calorie content (pies, croissants, cakes, rich desserts, etc.) are not part of our ‘everyday’ diet, we are more than happy to indulge in them from time to time.
