Weekly Meal Plan: Gluten-Free and Soy-Free Recipes Perfect for Spring!

Opinion: Whatever happened to simple, slow food in the climate debate? | 2021-04-16

“Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.”  So said Michael Pollan in a widely quoted and rarely followed bit of advice. “Eat local” says, well, almost everybody.  Food should be simple, unprocessed, and eaten close to where it was produced.  Everybody from the National Institute of Health to the nation’s editorial pages have waged a full scale assault on processed food for a generation.  Listen to academia on the subject:
