  1. Tea and Chocolate

    The transition from Summer to Autumn in the UK is usually a fairly swift one; one week the sun is blazing high in the sky, the next week everyone's wearing three layers in order to dress for both hot and cold temperatures, and finally this is followed by that week of unusual stillness, where the sun is out, there isn't a cloud in the sky, and you can see your breath fogging up the air before you. Then it rains for the next three months.

  2. Unhappy Food

    So I've written about junk food and I've written about health food, but it's time now to explore a different category that I've only lately realised exists; unhappy food, i.e., food that, when eaten, causes the eater to be unhappy.

  3. Five Times a Day

    Nutritionists, politicians and the entire food industry all agree that we should all be eating a minimum of five portions of fruit and vegetables every day in order to prevent death by happiness. Five portions a day, plus keep your salt intake to below 6g a day and your fat intake to below 90g; have any of you actually tried to do this? It's just not that chuffing simple!

  4. Willpower
