From Field to Fork

I recently read an article about people who eat the same thing for lunch every day. There are multiple reasons to make this choice - easy to prepare, cheap, and tasty are common drivers - particularly for those of us who work in an office every day.  One fellow ate a peanut-butter sandwich, with various fruit, vegetable, and dessert accompaniments for 25 years and he is still at it - even now that he's retired!  He says "he's never stopped liking it"....
