Salivarum Combinus Bolus. Chew Thy Food.
Subscribe Not to Extremism, Faddism, Elitism or Disorderedism when it comes to thy food. Reach for your best, but to do not get blind-sided by a philosophy that pulls the joy and nurture out of the act of eating.

Eat Not the Spoils of the Factory Floor, but revel instead in Nature’s bounty.
Share Thy Food, and thy stories, for dining together is a soulful act, and community is the glue that binds us together.
Imbibum Aqua Sufficientum. Drink Plenty of Water
Neither Gluttony Nor Asceticism Shalt Be Thy Mantra. Thou shalt not over-indulge, but neither shalt thou resort to deprivation. Moderation is thine own best friend.
