Thought for the Day

From an interview with food critic Patricia Wells.

Q – You once said, “Americans eat every meal as if it is their last.”

A – “And the French know that there will be more tomorrow.”

We [Americans] are still not a food culture. We don’t have the respect for food. We still have a fear of food. When we sit down to eat, we have too many negatives: no fat, can’t have carbohydrates. It’s just no, can’t, no, can’t. We forget what pleasure food can give us. It doesn’t have to cost much and doesn’t have to be complicated. Just going to the market and buying an apple can be a wonderful experience.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog! Murphy's is great, although I think I would miss Five Guys the most. That's how I get through my long runs. For the last 5 miles, I just keep telling myself I can eat a Five Guys burger if I finish.
