Free-ranging deli

Can eating at Whole Foods make you a better person?

The endemic grilled chicken sandwich had a healthy twist. It came with alfalfa sprouts, tomato, and lettuce and the big chicken breast was undoubtedly free-range, beautifully juicy, thick, and chicken-flavored.

The grilled-cheese sandwich is one of the best in town--two slabs of sourdough bread with mozzarella cheese, tomato, and pesto-tinged mayo with thin-cut, skin-on French fries on the side.

The dessert selection is slim--only treats from the bakery--but you won't be if you eat these often. A deceptively simple-looking chocolate brownie was so rich with eggs and butter that it had the consistency of fudge. This is good for you only in your dreams.

It looks like this game of dining dominoes means the consumer takes all. There has been lots of excellent takeout food in Dallas that Dallasites for the most part have declined to take out. The time seems to be ripe now, considering the statistics on how often we eat out, for us to want to eat at home occasionally. There's still no time to cook. It doesn't take market research, just common sense and a week of living in the '90s to see that fast, good home-replacement meals are the answer.
