Was watching some kinda health programme the other day (can't remember what it was) and a health person (don't know what you call them lol) said that home made chips are 1 of your 5 a day!? I've always believed chips aren't that good for you so is this true??
thx

Potatoes aren't exactly vitamin rich, but they aren't bad for you (deep fried in lard might not be the best though!). The whole '5 a day' thing is a drive to encourage people to eat a varied diet - that is whats important - but its common sense really - variety is the key. If you have some green veg, red veg, citrus fruit, other fruit and then potato in some form you'll be getting a sensible mix of the necessary vitamins and minerals...

Lol :giggle:

Seriously though, its not really all that scientific. The powers that be would probably say 'no' on the grounds that its deep-fried so bad for you (and they obv. want people to cut down on (saturated) fats), but if you have 4 other colours of veg/fruit + chips its not going to kill you!

I'll just give my two cents - I'm in the air force and healthy. I eat what I want and I'm a very firm believer in there is NO such thing as a bad food... Just a bad diet. Anyway its like 2am and I'm still at work. Bah.
