452. Healthy Diet
© Bruce Goodman 5 January 2015
“To put it mildly,” said the doctor to Vaughan, “you’re carrying too much weight.”
The doctor gave Vaughan a pamphlet, called A Fit and Healthy You, that outlined healthy eating. Vaughan promised to follow it.
Three servings of vegetables, and two servings of fruit: potatoes, carrots, Swiss chard, bananas and pineapple.
Six servings of bread and cereal: toast, cornflakes, pasta, rice, oats...
Two servings of dairy products: cheese and yoghurt.
Two servings of lean meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and nuts.
Eight glasses of water.
“Right,” thought Vaughan, “this diet caper is not as bad as I thought. That’s breakfast over. Now what’s for lunch?”
