“Everyone prefers some foods over others, but some adults take this tendency to an extreme. These people tend to prefer the kinds of bland food they may have enjoyed as children – such as plain or buttered pasta, macaroni and cheese, cheese pizza, French fries and grilled cheese sandwiches – and to restrict their eating to just a few dishes.”

Andrew Weil – The most common objection that…

Andrew Weil – It does kids no favors…


“It does kids no favors, and sets them up for a potential lifetime of poor health and social embarrassment, to excuse them from family meals of real food. Everyone benefits from healthy eating, but it is particularly crucial at the beginning of life.”

Andrew Weil – Each day as I travel…


“Each day as I travel through downtown Tucson, I am amazed at how quickly the most ancient of human behaviors have changed.
