Food for Thought II

In general, mankind, since the improvement of cookery, eats twice as much as nature requires. ~Benjamin Franklin

One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. ~Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright, Pavarotti, My Own Story

If organic farming is the natural way, shouldn't organic produce just be called "produce" and make the pesticide-laden stuff take the burden of an adjective? ~Ymber Delecto

We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons. ~Alfred E. Newman

Did you ever stop to taste a carrot? Not just eat it, but taste it? You can't taste the beauty and energy of the earth in a Twinkie. ~Astrid Alauda

Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness. ~Edward Stanley

  1. Hi Christina, very wise words indeed. Especially the one by Pavarotti, we should all learn to eat like the Italians (3 hour lunches and dinners!)LOL. Each quote truly has it's merit. I'm Ava by the way, found your blog through "A Cook's Life," and I think it's really cool you and hubby are both cooks and get to make a living out of doing something so enjoyable. I can only imagine what your dinner parties are like (when you have time for them).
    Looking forward to your future posts.
