Several years ago, my mother asked me why I would spend so much of my money on food when I could spend so much less. I remember this aching incredulity because I couldn’t begin to imagine how she could ask such a thing. My answer was simple: I buy the best food I can because I put it inside my body no fewer than six times a day. I can’t imagine anything more important to demand the best of than food.
