good, better, best . . . part III

I have more stuff to say (and photos to blog) about traveling and eating right, but by request, I interrupt: Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, will you please continue the good, better, best discussion, specifically covering pasta, seasonings, nut butters, and fats?   Pasta: white-flour pasta doesn’t belong in the kitchen of a health-conscious cook.
