Very nice article! Food should most certainly take its rightful place as a major concern for all of us. Most of us eat two or three times a day. Every day. What we eat affects absolutely everything. Our water, our air, our land, our farmers, our animals, our petrol use, our health, our attitudes, our jobs and our children. The essence of who we are as a people and as individuals all starts with our food.

Truth be told Americans and now most Westerners eat too much as it is. The concept that we need a protein at every meal is ridiculous as it it to force feed kids the starchy foods they later assume is normal in life. Why can't mothers and schools make decent and tasty vegetable dishes for their families? Is it really that hard, do they not know about crock pots and slow cooking or is the laziness just blames on a hectic lifestyle
