Is Home Cooking Really the Mount Everest of Parenthood?

That's the very appropriate question in a sense being asked by author and journalist Maryn McKenna in response to a recent piece in the New York Times' Motherlode column where KJ Dell'Antonia, inspired by the work of folks like Michael Pollan and Mark Bittman, vowed to, for one whole week, eschew processed in place of home cooked.

I wholeheartedly agree with Maryn - the fact that one week of home cooking is seen as sufficiently challenging to warrant a New York Times Motherlode column is proof positive that when it comes to healthy living, society is well and fully broken.

Bring back home economics!
