Give it up

A not-so-happy potato

It seems that giving up your favourite foods is actually really easy – especially if you follow the news! The latest bad food group is starch. We know all about the carb-free brigade and how great they feel but this week acrylamide entered the frame.

It coincides with an interview I heard on the radio about the best way to give things up that your really like – associate them with things that you really dislike.

But if you check your labels (remember Lyndalox and the three salts?) there’s an awful lot out there that we could give up much more easily based on the shock factor alone.

I’m now looking at my potatoes differently and may stick to boiled and mashed – unless told otherwise.
