Today food is everything! What do you think about when you think food…
Our relationship with food is pretty deep. It serves many needs beyond nourishment and it’s become a culture of it’s own. A culture that I too admire and participate in. But I do think sometimes… It’s gone a bit too far. It’s taken over relationships, for instance how much time we spend talking about what we will eat or if I want people over just to have people over but I have to make it a food affair first. How about next time we just pick the first thing that comes to mind and end the debate or I just say come over and just be our guest?
Eating for pure nourishment is foreign and would be hugely beneficial to all of us if we had a renewed focus in the kitchen.
Small reminders at the grocery store, when deciding what’s for dinner or when grabbing a snack….stop and think what the food is giving your body. Step back, breathe, think and bite in.
