Modern times and the convenience of prepackaged foods have led us astray and made us sick, or at least not as healthy as we could be.  One of the reasons for this is the disconnection we have with the foods we eat - foods we have nothing to do with creating.  The further an ingredient is away from nature, the more "improvements" man has rendered upon that product, the less good it is for you - with few exceptions. When you go back to the source, and use pure and natural ingredients chosen for their special qualities, then the result is food that bursts with goodness.  That's how we aim to cook.  This part is fundamental.
