His core message was this:
The "best food" is food that has been prepared by loving hands. So cook - for your friends, your family, your neighbors. The love instilled in preparing food for someone has a nutritional value all its own.
- He emphasized that nothing you buy will ever taste as good as something you make.
- He stressed the importance of eating a bright and colorful diet.
- He renounced products labeled "Diet" or "Lite", adding that the experience of eating one glorious homemade cookie will always beat eating an entire package of diet cookies.
