Poem from scratch

God's people wander
in the supermarket
among chemical frozen pies
overprocessed skillet dinners
nutritionless snack foods
soft drinks in throwaway bottes.
Like manna in the wilderness
hold fast
vegetables from sun-warmed gardens
protein-rich beans
oven-fresh whole-grain breads
home-canned fruit in Mason jars.

— More-With-Less, 1976

I love those over processed skillet meals!

Little sis, I know we grew up on Hamburger Helper, but I've become a food snob, and won't touch the stuff now. Now that I know I can make the same meal without all the salt & preservatives from scratch, I just don't see the point!
