I’ve been grabbing tomatoes and eating them like apples. (Sprinkled with a little sea salt) When I’ve got an extra minute I’ll throw together a quick tomato sandwich with a touch of mayo.

Food makes me happy. Fake food and chemicals being added to my food do not make me happy. I have a growing concern about two major things. 1. The quality of food. 2. Our choice of consumption of food as a nation. With this being said I can understand how an American lifestyle influences fast, easy and cheap to be the three magnet factors to food choice however I think we need to go back to the basics and remember just how easy it is to make good food, good for you without breaking the bank or spending hours sweating away in the kitchen.
