*DO NOT EAT PIZZA BEFORE BAKING.
*(luckily i caught this very important instruction just in the nick of time)
“everybody gets so much information all day long
that they lose their common sense.”
– gertrude stein
i so love
my favorite italian restaurant’s
children’s menu options:
CHEESE PIZZA 9
PASTA CLEAN 10
PASTA MESSY 10
no other options needed in my opinion
the holy trinity of italian children’s food.
“oh, my God, I love pasta.”

World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on October 16th in honor of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security, including the World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development
Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth.
“we know that a peaceful world cannot long exist,
one-third rich and two-thirds hungry.”

while many kids of my era ate glue, paste, chalk, and crayons
i was busy with my own unusual eating habits
because we played outside for hours and hours
in the fields and open spaces of our neighborhood
most every day
i supplemented by ‘indoor diet’
with my own outdoor natural food diet
often consisting of:
pulp from a freshly fallen tree stump
rich, black, loamy soil
and baby ants.
not sure why i was drawn to each of these things
or why or how i stayed healthy
must have been all of the snow i ate in the winter months
but i’ve learned not to eat baby ants
and i’ve since moved on to chocolate, pasta, and flamin’ hot cheetos
apparently i was one of the original clean eaters
quite by accident.
