Do yourself a favor and take advantage of these last few weeks of summer and slow down before your hectic work lifestyle pulls you back to the excuse we all love to hate - "I'm too busy to cook." Eating sensibly doesn't require as much time and money as one may believe, but it does require a conscious effort and decision to do so.
Let's face it - we're constantly reminded of how fast food is damaging, yet we're trading a healthier body and mind for convenience and ease. Slow Food wants to reintroduce you to the holistic values of food and bring back good, clean and fair food to your table.
