Fruit is Like a Meryl Streep Film

Slate.com has an interesting article on how to live 14 years longer. Since I’m in favour of living longer I decided to read it and was surprised by how simple the recipe is.

1 – Don’t smoke. I can do that.

2 – Drink a little bit. I can do that too.

3 – Exercise a bit more. OK.

4 – Eat 5 portions of fruit and vegitables a day. Mmmm

The last bit shouldn’t be a problem but it is. I’m a meat, potato and bread guy. It’s not that I dislike fresh stuff it just that fruit and veg to me is like a Meryl Streep film. Every time I see a Ms. Streep movie I really like it but I just don’t go out of my way to see them.

Tonight I shall eat a huge bowl of brussels sprouts while watching the Bridges of Madison County.

    Hmmmm bet it smelled delightful in your house last night! Is this is all part of your ploy to keep the cats off your lap?
