The problems with being a food scientist

One of the problems with being a food scientist is that when you need to fast, for a medical treatment say, you can’t get away from food. It is everywhere – most of what I like to read for pleasure, for instance.

The Atlantic Monthly arrived and has a very interesting article about the problem with banning transfats. I don’t typically eat doughnuts, but what with fasting and reading; guess what I am craving!

Actually I am able to eat again and I was sensible, and ate humus on toast followed fruit and yoghurt and a couple of chocolate chip cookies.
