Hilariously True

Dinner was noodles with sauce from our garden tomatoes, cauliflower, and chard.

I've been looking some stuff up on the fear of food, and enjoyed this brief bit from Psychology Today:
"Patients have come to me in despair, saying, 'There’s nothing left that I can eat! Beef contains hormones, chickens are raised under cruel conditions, salmon is endangered, cheese and eggs have too much saturated fat, and tofu contains estrogen-like compounds, I think I’m sensitive to gluten. I'm avoiding tomatoes and potatoes because I've heard that the nightshade family can make arthritis worse, and dairy products give me gas. I don't have anything left to eat!!' 
Fear of food is a very real problem in this land of plenty."
