I love quotes that add meaning to my life. Here are a few to live by:

How should I eat? (Not too much)
—Michael Pollan

If it is so difficult to learn to cook, how did all those early pioneer women manage to cross the country in rugged covered wagons and feed troops of people from one big pot hung over an open fire?
—Marion Cunningham, from Learning to Cook

Treat treats as treats.
—Michael Pollan

No matter how you slice it through, grain-fed meat production systems are a drain on the global food supply.
—Jonathan A. Foley, director of the Institute on the Environment, U of MN

  1. “Mushrooms” should be added to the list of food that should not be grown on grain for the same reasons as those associated with the grain-fed meat production systems.

  2. Bronwyn says:

    I love hearing this from you, Nova and Les. Your expertise on this subject is so helpful. The more we know about how are food is produced the better, I think!
