well fed, flat broke is about eating great food, and not paying a lot for it. It’s about eating seasonally, and making the most of what you have in your pantry and what you can afford. Good food doesn’t require expensive ingredients, and eating isn’t a task accomplished in a rush, at least around here, most of the time. It’s about slowing down, planning ahead, and savouring what you put on your plate.
It is not about calorie-counting, or waistlines, or me telling you what you should do for your health, because there are enough people telling us what we ought and ought not to do and they can shove it. I think the best thing you can do for your health is eat lots of vegetables, make foods you like, share meals with people you like, and always have wine.
