Munchie Box


I must admit, whilst I have been trying very hard to eat nutritiously, particularly since becoming vegetarian, I have occasionally missed the good old Scottish junk food which Rene and I used to practically live off of.

However, this recent article from the Scotsman reminded me just how terribly bad for us it was. And I feel rather nauseated right now from looking at it. Rene and I have enjoyed a munchie box or two in our day (although I never ate the donner meat even before I was veggie, cause I felt bad for the wee baby lambs, I'm such a softie). Kind of nasty to think about now.

"here comes the Munchy Box. A pizza box stuffed with as much as 2,200
calories-worth of assorted fast food has emerged as the latest lunchtime treat
for Scotland's schoolchildren.
The boxes sell for £4 to £5, can contain as
much as 150 grams of artery-clogging fat, and typically include doner meat,
chips, cheese, pakora and – if you're lucky – a token smattering of salad
."
