The fundamental things apply

Hitting my food blogs, I ran into this quote from x courtesy of The Old Foodie

Seems a certain Andrew Boorde in 1542 has the same insight I have had at the age of 42!

He stressed the importance of a balanced diet, exercise, a quiet life. Wine, he said, “must be fyne, fayre, and cleare to the eye, it must be fragrant and redolent”, but he had some reservations about beer: “nowe of late dayes it is moche used in Englande to the detriment of many Englyshemen” for it “doth make a man fatte, and doth inflate the bely”.
