When I go to brunch, I always sway between the same few dishes. These dishes are staples — no, cornerstones — of not only my meal, but also my life.

While my brunch adventures have been few and, quite honestly, nonexistent compared to a friend who goes every weekend like it’s her religion, here are a few of my favorite spots.

Just last week, a school lunch worker in Pennsylvania quit after an instituted “lunch shaming” policy, which calls for publicly replacing a chosen lunch with a lunch of lesser quality if a student’s account is in debt. Instead of a chosen hot lunch, the student receives a “sandwich, a fruit/vegetable serving and milk,” according to a Guardian article.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”118004″ img_size=”280×280″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”″][vc_custom_heading text=”STROINSKI: Few bad factory farms ruin whole bunch, and small farmers pay” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1474519416375{margin-top: 0px !important;}” link=”||target:%20_blank”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1474519436234{margin-bottom: 15px !important;}”]If there’s one thing everyone loves doing, it’s eating. A meal is a social experience, a chance to come together and exchange stories after a day of living separate lives. And the food we put on the table is just as important as the people who congregate around it; American food culture, once a beacon of Wonder Bread and trans-fat, is increasingly becoming more balanced, organic and safe.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”117904″ img_size=”280×280″ onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”″][vc_custom_heading text=”JOHNSTON: What food says about the 2016 political environment” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1474519521520{margin-top: 0px !important;}” link=”||target:%20_blank”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1474519542052{margin-bottom: 15px !important;}”]It’s not often that food consumption becomes a major topic of a tightly fought political race, but when you’re really stuck between two ridiculous candidates, it might be helpful to acknowledge their take on diets.
