Good morning everyone,
it was on the news this morning that take away orders have increased dramatically because of COVID and the subsequent lockdown.
Being a coeliac and into whole foods I don't eat take aways partly because I have a fear of food prepared by others and fast food leaves me cold, so this really interested me as its off my radar.
Just Eat has experienced a 76% increase ion demand for takeaways here's an article in the Guardian regarding this:
Here's what the NHS advises on making a healthy choice when ordering a take away:
So I'd really like to know what you buy that is healthy as the fast food industry appears worlds apart from the populations nutritional needs.
Interestingly to me the most popular take away in the UK is fish and chips as chips if cooked with fresh potato and with good quality cooking oil contains a lot more vitamin C than a few apples. Obviously the fish is deep fried in batter so fish n' chips is not low in calories.
Personally if I'm out and get peckish its a trip to the nearest fruit shop for an apple and a banana for me.
The photo is of home made gluten free vegan fritters with frozen veg so fast enough food for me.
