Re: Nutritional content of supermarket ready meals and recipes by television chefs in the United Kingdom: cross sectional study

Physicians overestimate medicine and underestimate food. They forget that life is metabolism, which requires nutritious food to satisfy hunger and create health. So let's recognize that it's not how you look, it's what you cook; it's not what you say, it's what you saute; it's not what you do, it's what you chew; it's not what you deduce, it's what you juice; it's not what you think, it's what you drink; and it's not who you meet, it's what you eat. Food is live medicine; medicine is dead food.
