Food

This:

Food is an important part of a balanced diet.
- Fran Lebowitz

came across my the top of my email this morning. I love it. Here are some more.

“Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much.”
- Michael Pollan

* Food grows and dies. It isn’t created.
* Food rots, wilts, and becomes generally unappetizing, typically rather quickly.
* Food doesn’t need an ingredient label (and probably isn’t in a package either).
* Food doesn’t have celebrity endorsements.
* Food doesn’t make health claims.
from Modern Forager by Scott Kustes

"If it has a label, don't eat it"
- Mark Hyman, MD

Just have to let you know that we are Michael Pollan acolytes, ourselves. No wonder you (and we) are interested in the Pastel Bistro in Tecopa, CA!
