Imagine for a moment if we once again knew these few unremarkable things: What it is we're eating. Where it came from. How it found its way to our table. And what, in a true
accounting, it really cost. We would no longer need any reminding that however we choose to feed ourselves, we eat by
the grace of nature, not industry, and what we're eating is never anything more or less than the body of the world.
