Abstract

This is coming to an end. What a relief. It’s not been easy. At times it’s reminded us of parental stories about World War 2 austerity - few luxuries or treats and a considerably restricted diet compared to our norm. Probably not as healthy as the WW2 UK diet has been claimed to be though - it’s been surprisingly difficult to put together a varied and healthy diet this month. Where we live is lacking traditional greengrocers, with limited market stalls selling fruit and vegetables, and it’s clear the supermarkets have a long way to go in the pursuit of plastic-packaging free shopping.
