Welcome to the Olympics, where the healthiest people in the world play.
But if you want to watch them, and eat, don’t expect anything healthy. This is a country that fries lettuce.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner is about fried sausages. With fried potatoes. And grease on the side. And if you want to wash that down, well, have a beer.
It’s rather amazing to me that the entire country isn’t overweight. But low and behold, it’s not as fat as America here, even if the food appears less healthy and certainly less tasty.
At Wemblay Arena, where badminton is played, you have your choice at the snackbars: Fried chicken with fried hashbrowns; Fried fish with fried fashbrowns. And if you don’t want that, they do have chocolate bars.
Don’t get me wrong: Like most people, I adore fried food. Just not every day, every meal, every venue.
