Eating lots of fruit and vegetables

in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

I don't keep count but I usually eat five or six veges and/or fruit a day. Sometimes I slack off in the evening if my work day was gruesome. Tonight I am having celery root in a remoulade, asparagus and beans with my cheese and walnut levain and Chateuneuf du Pap (that's my fruit). Ok, the last one's a joke. I had blueberries and a banana at breakfast and I'll probably have some other fruit tonight.

I've met the challenge for the past few weeks. The downside is I smell like a septic tank.

Chip butties are about 3 or 4 of your 5 a day.

I specialize in salads with loads of ingredients (fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds). Current record, 32

I have found the secret to really good tuna salad, a lot of celery.

We have this cheesy plastic mill/food processor and in it I chuck a can of tuna (sometimes water sometimes oily), two roughly chopped big stalks of celery with the leaves and a generous glob of mayo. I then grind all that up until it's a paste and voila! I have the kind of tuna they sell in diners. Diner owners are cheap. They will up the celery amount over the tuna and so that is why my new way with lots of celery tastes so familiar. It's the like having a tuna on rye in the Paramus Diner on Rt. 9 in Paramus New Jersey!
I love you.

It's early Sunday evening here and upon awakening from my late Sunday afternoon nap my wife asked me what I wanted to do for dinner. I asked her about the status of the two fat chicken breasts I had defrosted and she said they were on the countertop. I suggested how about I season them up and simply bake them with some potatoes. I'm thinking one-dish meat, baked potatoes and a salad on the side. She says, "Dozo," which means "Go ahead." So I get the oven pre-heating and am about to scrub the potatoes when she comes in the kitchen and asks me what pan I am thinking of using. I had been thinking of cramming it all into a square glass brownie dish and she says I should use the big glass oval for baking turkeys. Fine, I agree, and pull down the big glass oval and while I am doing that she is pulling carrots and eggplants from the fridge. I then ask her if she wants the potatoes peeled or baked in their skins. I then laugh and realize the woman has hijacked my dinner idea and so here I am. I can hear rattling around in the kitchen as i type. This is a mans world …
I love you.

I don't eat fruit. I have a bowl of soup for lunch and some green veg at night usually. So is that 2 a day?

I've made it this far eating a lot of shite. Does not eating 5 a day actually reduce your life expectancy?

You get your pulses in that soup, don't you? I think that counts.


I have an apple every day COME WHAT MAY

and probably one more portion - usually veg, in a salad or Chinese or something


Everyone's different, aren't they? stating the damned obvious. My Mam hardly ever has fruit or veg and eats all kinds of shite and she's 90 next year and doing well.

It certainly gives me hope!

I don't eat that badly. I eat a lot of fish even if it is cheap fish. I always have some kind of veg during the week and, yeah, veg soup for lunch. I eat very little red meat too.

I bloody love fruit and fruit juices. 6 a day is a bit beyond what I usually have though - it's more like 3-4.

Once, sometimes twice a day. I'm not chained to the bog or anything.
