I want to see McDonalds and all of the other fast food chains go out of business. I would also like to see the shelves of the supermarkets cleared of all products by General Foods, General Mills, NABISCO and any other food processing giant and I want all of this to happen the good old American way: through supply and demand.
How do you go about changing supply and demand: education. We need to educate our children about nutrition, how to grow food, what food is good for you and what foods will kill you. Then we need to teach them how to prepare delicious, wonderful food that they will enjoy for a lifetime. Pretty soon (12 years to be exact) we will have a new breed of American that will demand local and organic meat and produce and a food processing and fast food industry that will shrivel and die because there will be no more demand for their poison.
We need to get our government to stop creating a glut of cheap corn and start bolstering organic fruit and vegetable farmers. Farming does not work the same way as other industries and if we want our food supply to remain safe and abundant we need to collectively support it through government subsidies and other programs. It can be done, but it takes everyone to become active and demand change.

And now for something delicious. Tuna sometimes is priced right. When albacore is available I grab it because, frankly, I have better luck cooking it than any other tuna.
- 2 Pieces of Albacore Tuna (about 1/2 pound total)
- Salt and Pepper
- Sauté Pan
- Melt a pat of butter in the pan.
- Sauté tuna on both sides, about 5 minutes each. The great thing about albacore is that it can take a little more cooking without completely drying it out and ruining it.
- Lightly salt and pepper.
- Squeeze a little lemon.
