Observe the line of cars in front of any fast-food shack and you will have witnessed the real zombie-apocalypse. We buy "food" that is cheap, fast, and easy. It's more processed, colored, preserved, packaged, shipped, out-of-season, out-of-date, and out-of-nutrients. It clogs our arteries, drains our energy, and empties our wallet as we have to pay bigger money for bigger clothes and bigger medicines to stabilize our bigger bodies. All of a sudden that food is not so cheap, we are not moving so fast, and life sure is not easy. This is a cookbook, but it is also a recipe book for living simply and being happy with your life.
