You might think it’s strange that a blog with the word “spam” in its title would feature pictures of great home-cooked meals and food from a variety of restaurants.
To me, it’s like peeling an onion. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s another, more interesting layer underneath.
90% of the meals featured on this blog are made from ingredients bought at a farmer’s market. Usually this will be the Union Square Greenmarket, although I might get produce from other greenmarkets located throughout New York City whenever possible. Other locations include the greenmarket at Rockefeller Center and at Lincoln Square in the Upper West Side.
Whenever possible, I try to use local and/or organically-grown or produced foodstuffs. I strongly believe that by doing so, not only am I eating better and living a healthier lifestyle, I’m also doing my part in supporting a sustainable environment by lessening the effects of pollution and encouraging the growth of biodiversity through the use of heirloom produce and heritage-breed livestock.
Life is short. Why waste it on bad food and an unhealthy environment?
