We live in a world where the very basic requirements of our existence are moving further and further away from tradition. Our current food system is sick and getting sicker, as is the population. It’s time to return our emphasis to top-quality ingredients that are farmed and harvested in the most ethical ways. It’s time to re-educate ourselves about what “real food” actually means and what it can do to help preserve our long-term health. It’s time to put our well-being back at the top of our list of priorities. It’s time to put the brakes on out-of-control food madness and get back to basics.
