Have you ever come home after a long day at work, and figured it would be easier to eat cheese on toast, than to cook something healthy? We’ve all been there – groceries take time, it’s too hard to think of stuff to make, and frankly, eating badly is often cheaper. Those are all pretty…

OK, you “wellness” spruiking quacks. Enough. As Nicole Kidman giggles and prances across my TV screen in cowgirl boots toting a bunch of freshly dug carrots, I ask (out loud to no one): ‘Why does she need vitamins if she’s eating all those root vegetables?’ Why indeed.
