So I found this quote awhile ago, and as I do with all my posts, I wait until the day feels right and then I post the little tidbits I have tucked away.
“If you embrace moderation, eat whole foods instead of junk, live within your physical, monetary, and environmental budget rather than constantly exceeding it, you will lose weight, tread more lightly on the planet, and gain satisfaction from these things.”
— Mark Bittman
The quote really says it all. What a life we could live and what a world this would be if we all lived in moderation. Mark Bittman is journalist for the New York Times and he also appears on cooking segments for the Today Show. He is a professional food writer and cook (Bittman is clear about the fact that he is not a chef) and he is clearly an observer of the world. In his most recent book, Food Matters, he focuses on, among other things, the links between eating too much meat, obesity, and global warming. His commentaries on the Big Food Industry are priceless, so when I saw the image of the Chocolate Cheerios box with, “This #$!% Has Got To Stop: Part Six”, above the image, I just couldn’t help but share with you. I hope you you enjoy Bittman’s post. Take a look around his website, he has some great minimalist ideas for all of us :).
