A SUPPORT group has been set up for anyone struggling with the painful issue of not being quite sure what they fancy for lunch.
Emma Bradford, whose job in central London leaves her exposed to a highly stressful array of food choices, can lose whole mornings trying to decide what she’s in the mood for.
She said: “From the moment I wake up, the anxiety’s there. What if I get it wrong again?
“I spend hours flip-flopping between different options. Should I be adventurous and go for street food? Or give my heart what it truly desires and have a pub toastie, because grilled cheese is what my heart truly desires?
“By the time noon rolls around I’m a mess. Is soup worth the money? Do I actually like sushi? Is the meat in those tubs at the burrito bar really what they say it is? Will a simple sandwich feel like a missed opportunity?
“Now I’m finally getting help. Sitting in a circle with other people who admit to spending 15 minutes hovering at the aisles in Pret before giving up and making a dash for Leon has made me feel far less alone.
“It helps me cope with the pressure and live with my mistakes. Yesterday I had an entire family bag of Sainsbury’s Bacon Crispies for lunch, but I’ve forgiven myself and today is a new day.”
