We define our life with food. Food and the way we eat defines our life. Food preserves our identity and connects us with one another. There are distinctive customs surrounding food and the connection to the community in which we live.
Eating well takes time, it has to be important in our life. It’s like our relationships with anything: to do it well and make it work we have to put time into it; planning time, preparing time, and of course meal time. If it is void of these three substances in any way the quality will go down hill. If something is not given priority, then it becomes less important in our lives. Care and respect are a good indicator of our quality of life.
It’s up to us to demand good wholesome food. Cooking good wholesome food in our kitchens can make a huge difference in our quality of life by not compromising our integrity.
