Just wondered what members make of the hype around Bake Off and the Great British Menu. I try to avoid TV as much as possible but caught the end of GBM and there is a load of hype around Bake Off around at the moment. Friends of mine who are scrupulously healthy are forever going on about something called a Ruby Tandoh cake they've made. 'Oh, and I've out a couple of pounds on!'
It seems that there is so much entertainment around eating without any thought of the consequences or impact on the our health. Hours of food and eating focussed content without any thought of the health impact. I was looking at some food sections of the Times and the Grauniad this weekend and I couldn't find nutritional information about them. You have to work it out for your self.
What do we think on here? I'm very uneasy about the whole approach of the media in this area. We don't need more food we need better nutrition and I struggle to find it anywhere but specialist sites like this one.
For me its going to be Bake OFF!
