Interactive Gnashing

So I’ve been grappling with where to start off talking about food. For me, food is interactive, hands-on and I think it’s valuable to explore the importance of that relationship. Okay, I know it may seem silly to think about having a relationship with food, but don’t be to quick to judge. Think about it this way, the food we prepare, are around and consume are the direct fuel for our lives. You know that feeling when you’ve had a greatly satisfying meal? There’s no better way to give back to your body then to give it the best food. The ability to connect our body and mind through food is a pretty phenomenal cycle in life.  Whether you’re religious or not, it’s beneficial to begin to think further about how the earth provides for us (which reinforces the importance of taking care of our earth). So today I urge you to self-reflect on what food means to you. How do you consume it? How are you connecting with the earth? What does feeding your body mean to you? These reflections are vital to maintain a healthy relationship with food. This all may seem a little vague, but take a few minutes to really think about it. After all, how you feed your body directly impacts your day-to-day life and long-term health.
