The goal of Porridge Day would be to raise money for non profit organizations (mainly Mary’s Foods) who provide healthy daily foods and education to depriving children in developing nations.

World War 2................?
well for the UK there was No food Shortage i never went Hungry just no choice I had porridge for breakfast or an egg on toast of beans on toast bread and Dripping sandwiches for lunch and Usually a cooked meal for dinner Usually a stew the next day was soup with Dumplings (the Liquid from the Stew ) Sunday if meat was available we had a roast Saturday was Fish and Chips never Rationed Neither were Restaurants so if you could afford it you could eat out subject to what was available
before the americans arrive in June 1942 i had an egg a couple of times a week and my parents had coffee But from day one the americans never went Hungry and some never left the UK or fired a shot in anger until they left on June 6 1944
But on 07 June they were Giving eggs away the Butchers had meat very cheap and coffee appeared on the shelves and fruit was available
I am a survivor of Hitlers blitz on London and i don't Know were people get the Idea we went Hungry when the British Army kept the Suez canal open allowing the Empire to feed us
women took over the mans Jobs in the factories the girls were so good at Building Aircraft we had more aircraft at the end of the Battle of Britain than Qualified Pilots
the Girls were Building everything we needed for Churchill to plan an Invasion Of Europe in 1941
because we believed that we would be alone until hitler was Defeated and all before Lend Lease
these Girls worked Long hours and during Air Raids there was Lunch time Live entertainment in the factory Canteens and Saturday Dances were some of the Best Moral Boosters
even princess Elizabeth was a Motor Mechanic in the Army the Girls became Drivers Taxi drivers Truck drivers
and Thousands Joined the WRENS WACS and the WRAF The Land Army WVS and The Women's Auxiliary Air Force Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) which flew RAF planes from a factory to a fighter squadron’s base. There were 120 women in this unit out of 820 pilots in total. Secret agents he most famous female SOE members were Violette Szabo and Odette Churchill
Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS). Like soldiers, they wore a khaki uniform. they acted as drivers, worked in mess halls where many had to peel potatoes, acted a cleaners and they worked on anti-aircraft guns. fuse the shells and be there when the firing cord was pulled……By July 1942, the ATS had 217,000 women in it. As the war dragged on, women in the ATS were allowed to do more exciting jobs such as become welders (unheard of in ‘civvie’ street), carpenters, electricians etc.
Skilled women could earn £2.15 a week about $9 dollars US
Slimming world Please help?
Basically to keep it simple you choose either a red or green day.
Then have as much 'free' foods as you like within reason.
Red: Meat,poultry and fish (skin and fat removed).
Green:Rice,pasta and potatoes.
Most fruit and veg is also free on both days.(Potatoes,peas and sweetcorn only free on a green day).
As well as the free foods you also have healthy extras to make sure your diet has fibre,calcium etc.
There are healthy extras A.dairy product's. B.fibre or meat.
So on a green day as well as whatever free foods like potatoes and rice, you would have either one or two A choices eg.28g cheese and also two b choices eg.113g chicken or 85g beef.
Basically you eat tons of rice and pasta with a measured amount of meat on a green day.
On a red day as much meat as you like with a measured amount of potatoes or brown bread.
It's tricky to explain,you would be best to join a class to at least get the hang of it for a few weeks then decide whether or not to keep it up.
Without at least a Slimming World book you won't get anywhere.
Super foods are just free foods that will help you along a bit.
