From NYT: Yeah Food! Boo Diets.

It seems like people are starting to enjoy food again.

The New York Times reports some surprising trends that have been taking place in regards to food. More people are cooking from scratch. Fewer people are dieting. The number of farmers markets has doubled. Organic food sales are increasing.

There has also been a movement recently away from the low-fat and sugar-free foods that have traditionally been marketed as health foods. People are starting to get that it isn't all about calories. I mean, come on, who has really lost weight from drinking diet coke?

It seems like we are willing to engage about food differently. Now the question is, can we keep it up?
