My favourite kind.
It isn't too difficult to tell if the food you are about to put in your trolley is real food or fake food.
Look at the list of ingredients on the packet.
It doesn't have a packet? Fabulous, food without a packet is real food. It's a potato, an apple, a tomato, sling it in your trolley (careful the tomato doesn't get squashed).
It has a container but there are no ingredients listed? That's because it is a real food, put it in your trolley too.
There are no ingredients listed on a carton of cream because all that's in there is pure, natural cream from a cow. This stuff however is fake food and has all these things in it;
Buttermilk (63%), Vegetable Oil (26%), Vegetable Oil (8.8%), Buttermilk Powder, Emulsifiers (E435, E322-from soya), Lactose, Stabilisers (E412, E410), Colour (e160a).
Why would anyone want to eat that?
Eggs, oats, lentils, honey, salad leaves, grapes, carrots, pasta, tinned tomatoes, butter and cheese. Just some of the real foods I bought this morning.
Supper tonight, a salmon and sweetcorn tart made from real foods.
Pastry made from flour, lard, butter and water.
Filling made from tinned wild salmon, frozen sweetcorn, milk, cream, eggs and cheese.
