Step Up to the Polls

It’s Not Just Food It’s a Vote If people ever spend any meaningful time with Cindy or me they quickly learn about our eating habits, and invariably this information is never accepted at face value. This is probably because making health choices are not the same as being tall, or blue-eyed. “I don’t eat meat” is not something you...
