Maybe the AMRC should have looked to Denmark for answers, or at least for the wrong answers. In 2011 they brought in their own fat tax on foods containing more than 2.3 % saturated fat. But less than two years later it's been deemed a failure and is to be abolished.

As expected from the title this is not a ground-breaking selection of recipes - these are family styled dishes mostly, with a few exceptions. Quite a lot of the recipes are too simple to really need instruction.
I see nothing wrong with mixing your drinks. To be honest, the headache you're dealing with isn't because you've had wine then beer then whisky, it's because you've had wine and beer and whisky (with a couple of cheeky tequilas thrown in for good measure). It's excess, not the booze's fault.
