I had these two breakfasts one day apart and it got me thinking about what each represents, vis-a-vis this ongoing end of the world event.
One is clearly healthier than the other, but the benefits of each during this time may not be obvious. So here goes.
Pros: Healthy and highly nutritious. Also quite tasty I might add.
Cons: All ingredients are fresh and require refrigeration. Even in a fridge, ingredients will spoil within a week or two.
In a pandemic lockdown; will keep your immunity strong but the ingredients cannot be efficiently hoarded.
Pros: Keeps in the box for many months. Once opened, keeps for about a week when refrigerated. Packed with calories.
Cons: Full of sugar and low in good nutrients.
In a pandemic lockdown; will keep you alive for longer due to calorie density. Can be hoarded for months efficiently in it's packaging and stores away on a shelf. Will do nothing for your immune system though.
Here's the question:
If you're going to be locked indoors for 4 months (as is being threatened in the UK for the elderly), which option would you rather have and why?
You'd be allowed to shop once before the lock up
