Eat healthy, live longer

I don’t know about you but there are certain foods I eat that actually make me feel healthier as I eat it.

The best example of this is when I am eating Japanese food. It could be anything from sushi to unagi don but, when coupled with a bowl of steaming miso soup and a glass of lightly sparkling mineral water, I can almost feel my health improving.

Totally ridiculous I know, but it’s all about how it makes you feel and Japanese food does it for me.

Or at least it did until I bought some Japanese “fast food” the other day. I purchased a salmon and rice seaweed pouch with some wasabi peas.

Imagine my surprise while munching happily through them, when I read the list of ingredients (in tiny print) on the side of the pot.

In order, they are:

Green peas, starch, vegetable fat and oil, sugar, wheat flour, salt, powdered Japanese horseradish, seasoning, amino acid, baking powder, emulsifier: E473 & E471, propylene fatty acid ester, Sorbitan fatty acid ester, allyl isocyanate, colour: E102 & E133.


‘E’ numbers? In my wasabi peas?

‘Powdered Japanese horseradish’?



Moreish they may be but do you think you’ll catch me eating those again?

Yeah, probably!

Delicious little green beggars!
