Ask these questions to your partner : 

Ask these questions to your partner Is food a pleasure for you? What do you normally eat in a typical day? Do you ever cook? Do you ever eat “unhealthy” food? How do you feel about it? Are you trying eat less amount of anything at the moment? Are people’s diet in Spain getting better or worse?

Slide 3: 

Not really. I enjoy certain kinds of food, but most meals are just fuel to keep me going through the day. I usually have a bowl of cereal or toast for breakfast. For lunch I eat at a restaurant near my office. I prefer Japanese or Indian food. I usually eat rice with fish and vegetables, soup or sushi. I don’t eat meat, but I eat a lot of fish. In the evening, I just have something light at home. Not very often. I don’t have time or talent to cook full meals. I usually heat up a frozen meal or order a takeaway. Sometimes I get fast food for lunch. I have to admit that I love French fries. I feel terrible about it afterwards, but I don’t do it very often. I am trying to cut down on the amount of fat I eat. I’m also trying to eat more wholemeal bread. Not really. I enjoy certain kinds of food, but most meals are just fuel to keep me going through the day.

Slide 4: 

Yes, definitely. For me good meals with the family make me happy. I’m quite traditional and I have three main meals a day. For breakfast, I like hot chocolate, and bread and butter with honey or jam. For lunch, I often eat in a restaurant with my colleagues. I usually have vegetables and meat or fish, but I love pasta and rice too. Yes, I cook every morning for my family. I often make soup or traditional French dishes, and then we have cheese and salad. Not at home. I think most of the food I cook is healthy, but occasionally when I eat out I have something unhealthy, but it doesn’t worry me Yes, I’m trying to eat less chocolate. I think people’s diets are getting worse and worse. It’s quite strange because we have a lot of information now about how bad fast food is for you

Slide 5: 

It depends. Sometimes I just eat because I know I have to. I enjoy meals at weekends, because I am more relaxed. For breakfast I always have a coffee or two and then I like changing, sometimes toast, others cereal, cheese and ham. I like eating a piece of toast during the morning. For lunch I usually have vegetables, salad or soup and sometimes meat or fish. I don’t usually eat much for dinner. Sometimes just a small sandwich. Yes, but I try not to. I don’t like it, so it is usually my husband who cooks. I am always too busy. Yes, sometimes but I think not very often. Once a week I eat pizza, it’s our Friday treat. Not really, I am terrible at following any diet at all. I think it is much worse now than it was when I was a child. I don’t understand. It doesn’t take more time to eat healthier.`
