“whenever we cook for others, we are making a statement to them. If what we prepare and present to our family and friends is attractive, tasty, and health-supporting, we are saying that we want them to be well and happy, to feel nurtured and strengthened. When we offer cuisine that is made of whole and natural ingredients, we are saying that we want them to have all the energy they need in order to make every aspect of their lives richer. We are saying that we honor them” — John Robbins, In May All Be Fed
