No wonder we waste so much food. We’ve forgotten how to relate to it, on the most basic and the most complex of levels. We’ve spent so long, both as individuals and a society, as consumers in thrall to a food system that has abstracted us from nature, clouding our innate understanding of it as well as our ability to draw on it for nutrition and sustenance.
I’ll admit to being a fan of those Progressive Insurance commercials. You know, the ones featuring Flo, who’s just the right mix of funny, assured, enigmatic, and desexualized sexy. I don’t know that there’s much more to say about her, but the commercials themselves are at worst pedestrian and at best playful and enjoyable.
Normally, when I stumble across a health article on one of the major portals, my instinct is to roll eyes, brace for a clunky dose of conventional wisdom, and hope some of the advice is as at least absurd enough to be laughable (all the better if it includes some Salad Laughing shots).
