Just Say No to Food Fads ... or at Least Question Them

Bravo to Charles Krauthammer for his recent column about food fads:  Make mine Gluten-full talking about his skepticism of food fads.

 Charles Krauthammer:  Make mine Gluten-full
Charles Krauthammer in the Washington Post: Make mine Gluten-full

To which I'll say:

Ditto that, and pass the cheese and butter!

I love to cook and bake.  Granted, I do base most meals around fresh seasonal produce (organic when possible); we eat whole grain pasta and organic brown basmati rice.  I garden extensively and grow many different types of vegetables and and herbs, and also have fruit and nut trees.  But poultry, meat, eggs, and/or cheese and other dairy is present is present at every meal.  I'll add that my Dutch Grandmother ate a daily breakfast of fried eggs, bacon, and a cinnamon roll; always had homemade baked good including cookies and apple pie in the kitchen.  Gramma lived into her late 80s:  healthy, active, and mentally spry.

Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve!
