The Food of the South

“I think things like food, the food of the south is sort of the common tie that binds us all,
Black and White, the sense memories. It’s a very particular part of the country.”

They’re Not All Addicts

“People who are homeless, they’re not all addicts. A lot of times, they’re just people who,
through something like losing their job or losing someone in their life, ended up on the streets.
So much of our time is spent in cars that sometimes you need to look out of those windows.
And you see that a dollar, 50 cents, whatever you have, may not mean much to you,
but it means everything to people who are hungry and who are in need.”

Organic Versions of the ‘Dirty Dozen’

“Be sure to buy organic versions of the ‘dirty dozen:’
the fruits and vegetables that, when grown conventionally,
are loaded with pesticides and chemicals:
Grapes, apples, lettuce, bell peppers, carrots, nectarines,
peaches, strawberries, pears, kale, and celery.”

Toxicity & Cravings

“Toxicity causes nutritional deprivation – and your body then
craves more and more food, trying to get what it needs.”

Health Care Has to Happen in Our Kitchens

“True health care reform cannot happen in Washington.
It has to happen in our kitchens, in our homes, in our communities.
All health care is personal.”

It’s Not All About the Fried Chicken & The Biscuits

“I know when you think about the South, you think about fried foods,
but we eat a tremendous amount of vegetables. I have my own garden,
so vegetables have always been a big part of my life.
I love broccoli. I love fresh beets. It’s not all about the fried chicken and the biscuits. ”
