Appreciate the directness and simplicity of your advice.
IMO, two truths about food that we now know beyond any doubt: Everything we eat is getting blander and flavour technology is getting phenomenally better.
The forensic analysis of our food choices in "The Dorito Effect" is superb. A scientific argument that convinced me to eat better. Basic gist: we are all flavour seeking animals and will do anything to get it!
I'd really appreciate if you can spare the time to read my analysis of the book, I think it makes a perfect companion article to your excellent writing!
