A memorable quote from the Feb. 7, 2011 episode of Angelo Coppola’s Latest in Paleo podcast:
We live in a world where the average person is getting his food from restaurants and packages.
Well said, Angelo! Latest in Paleo is a blog and podcast that positions itself “at the intersection of scientific evidence and evolutionary clues left to us by our ancestors” in its approach to nutrition and fitness. Before-and-after pictures of Angelo provide convincing testimony to his personal, modified Paleo approach.
His quote, above, pretty well sums up why I do everything I can to encourage people to cook. To encourage people to learn how to cook.
Are you getting most of your food from restaurants and packages? Ask yourself:
- Do you unwrap your breakfast, or do you cook it?
- Do you poke holes in a plastic film that covers your lunch before you stick it into a heatless heating chamber?
- Do strangers assemble your dinner?
Do you want to eat better? Feel better? Do better — by yourself, your family, your society, the planet?
Eat the best: learn to cook.
