    Just because stuff is exotic doesn't make it better for you than every day stuff. It's also much less likely to be grown locally and therefore fresh. Although I wouldn't class kale and spinach as exotic - are you from up north?

    When salading, I aim for as much of a rainbow as clientCo's salad bar will permit -

    so Tomatoes, grated carrot, sweetcorn, lettuce/cucumber/watercress/spinach and beetroot. Chuck on a handful of sunflower hearts for good measure. ( I pair said salad with a jacket potato laden with butter and cheese )

    I was always under the probably misguided impression that eating late at night was bad because your body was slowing down and did not digest it because you were not active enough.

    And when you think about it there must be some truth in this because 'time' is a man made construct.
    OK I'll rephrase it for you. Don't eat loads in the three hours just before you goto sleep.

    If the carrots are whole, with skin on and in a bag, they are likely just fine. You'll notice some different between variety of carrots. Different varieties taste slightly different; much like the difference in taste between variety of strawberry.

    Pre-prepared trimmed fruit/veg, de-skinned, cut, bagged, almost always have some form of preservative to keep them from decomposing within a few hours. Removing air isn't enough, so they use gasses and complex synthetic starches to keep it looking fresh. If you've had this type of semi-ready fruit/veg before, you'll have noticed that it tastes pretty weird and as an unusual texture.

    Edit: to add - the ONLY reason these preservatives and weird synthetic starches are added is to benefit the company, not you. Rather than prepare fresh food to take away, companies would save money and make more profit by using weird artificial chemicals to make something last longer, thus optimising logistics and bulk moving items. That's how supermarkets work.

    Don't use supermarkets where possible.

    If vegans can eat only this and still look relatively healthy it has to be a superfood.

    You should try them.

    They are actually crunchy snacks that the British stole from the Indians.

    Are you sure you mean blending, which keeps the whole fruit/ vegetable (including fibre etc.), and not juicing, which removes all the solids and does indeed create a very high sugar/ very high Glycemic /index drink?
