Hunger is the best sauce in the world.  ~Cervantes

My husband says this all the time and it’s moved into our family lexicon.  But it’s true; hunger is the best sauce.   Here are some favorite food pictures and food sayings…all calorie free for you today. Indulge.  It’s summertime and the living is easy and delicious!

All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.  ~John Gunther

A fruit is a vegetable with looks and money.  Plus, if you let fruit rot, it turns into wine, something Brussels sprouts never do.  ~P.J. O’Rourke

He who distinguishes the true savor of his food can never be a glutton; he who does not cannot be otherwise.  ~Henry David Thoreau

Whatsoever was the father of a disease, an ill diet was the mother.  ~George Herbert

Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.”  ~Michael Pollan

Sex is good, but not as good as fresh, sweet corn.  ~Garrison Keillor

And I find chopsticks frankly distressing.  Am I alone in thinking it odd that a people ingenious enough to invent paper, gunpowder, kites and any number of other useful objects, and who have a noble history extending back 3,000 years haven’t yet worked out that a pair of knitting needles is no way to capture food?  ~Bill Bryson

In Mexico we have a word for sushi:  bait.  ~José Simons


Strawberries are the angels of the earth, innocent and sweet with green leafy wings reaching heavenward.  ~Terri Guillemets

This special feeling towards fruit, its glory and abundance, is I would say universal…. We respond to strawberry fields or cherry orchards with a delight that a cabbage patch or even an elegant vegetable garden cannot provoke.  ~Jane Grigson

When I add a spoon of honey to my tea, I give thanks to a dozen bees for the work of their whole lives.  When my finger sweeps the final drop of sweetness from the jar, I know we’ve enjoyed the nectar from over a million flowers.  This is what honey is: the souls of flowers, a food to please the gods.  Honeyeaters know that to have a joyful heart one must live life like the bees, sipping the sweet nectar from each moment as it blooms.  And Life, like the world of honey, has its enchantments and stings…. ~Ingrid Goff-Maidoff  “The Honey Sutras”
