Feeding Habits

The current recommended meal schedule for knowledge workers, six small ones a day, parallels what the son of Charles Lindbergh observed about the feeding habits of a group of captive monkeys. The animals preferred to take one bite out of the perfectly ripe section of a piece of fruit and then move on to the next resource. In the Smithsonian magazine story that covered his research, Lindbergh said the grocery bills were breaking him.

I'm more than OK with eating like that. Doing so keeps me as sharp as I am able to be over the longest stretch of daytime productivity. Control costs by shopping carefully for good ingredients (not necessarily the most expensive ones) and cooking in conscious quantity. Experience with keeping house without electricity taught me to keep food headed toward the innards in a timely way. Fresh is best, dried a second choice -30-
