Burger vans to be closed unless they serve salads.

Now as a cardio-vascular patient I'm as much in favour of healthy eating as the next person, but does anyone really go to a burger van if they're looking for a healthy option?

Imagine the dialogue " May I have a fresh green salad tossed only in olive oil and balsamic vinegar with a side serving of spam fritters,bacon,sausage,egg and chips please? ;o))

Sounds tasty....

Local greasy spoon cafe/trailer near me would go bust over night if they started serving salads!

What more does a trucker want than a hot brew & a sausage & egg sarnie!

That sort of breakfast is completely unhealthy without the black pudding and the fried bread.

When on a course last year the amount of full English breakfasts served each morning was amazing, in fact you could count on 1 hand those of us who were eating healthy food.

As far as I'm concerned there is no such thing as 'healthy' or indeed 'unhealthy' food. As long as a balanced diet is maintained then there should be little to worry about.

People who spend there lives reading the sides of packets seeing how much sugar/salt/cholesterol etc etc is in a product is surely heading for a heart attack or a nervous breakdown anyway!

"does anyone really go to a burger van if they're looking for a healthy option?"

By the same token - does anyone go to McDonald's if they want to eat food?

It's typical that the foods regarded by the masses as being tasty are probably going to do the most harm. However having the odd fry up probably won't do any damage, it may be wise to avoid such a diet on a 24/7 basis.
