Interesting article by Michael Pollan in this weekend's magazine section of the NYT.
Should make all the germophobes cringe.
So maybe we shouldn't worry about the 5 second rule. Pick it up off the floor, brush it off and eat. You're helping the body out. I'm going to worry even less about how pristine the kitchen is. Sanitized food isn't good food anyways in my view. Just pulled some asparagus from the garden and ate a few stalks as is. They were great. Going to have some more with lunch and maybe I should just use them raw in a salad. Got to feed the microbes.
