A balanced diet

There’s a tendency, when your children become adults and leave home, to go straight back to eating grown-up food again. It’s goodbye cheesy chips, spaghetti hoops, and Coke floats, and hallo carrot and coriander soup. Such a radical change of diet can play havoc with both chakra and digestion, and you have to be careful not to overdo it.

So, there being no calories in children’s leftovers (as any fule kno) I’ve made myself cheesy chips for lunch and pretended that someone just left them there, unwanted. It seems immoral to waste them.

My yin/yang equilibrium is thus restored, my conscience is clear, and I expect to have lost a stone by teatime.
