There were some useful take-aways, such as the Pleasure Principle which reminds us to savour every morsel and eat mindfully. The 50% rule, to pause every time you've eaten half of what's on your plate, and think about whether you want to continue eating, then if you DO continue eating, to eat only half of what remains, then half of that, is also helpful.

Sadly, living in Singapore, I can't take advantage of buying fresh local produce (since we import everything). The many mentions of the Union Square Greenmarket led to me wishing for local farmers' markets here... but for that to happen, we first need local farmers. Boy how I miss the Green Markets in NYC.

All in, a quick, easy read with some useful tips that can be put in practice fairly easily.
