Food is about more than just taste. Food is nourishment for the five layers of our being. It impacts not only your physical body, but our minds, emotions and spirit as well. Many factors play a role: the prana or lifeforce in the food, the quality of the soil, the attitude of the cook and the mindset with which we eat our food.
Shifting your attention away from solely tasting food to asking yourself “how does my body want to be nourished today” and “how does earth intent to nourish me today” provides for a completely different approach and culinary experience.
Food can either facilitate connection or it can hinder it. Food can make us feel deeply connected, nourished and loved. It can either make us feel alive or dead. As Dr. Seuss said: “If we eat dead food, we feel deadened”. I add: “If we eat alive food, we feel alivened”.

When IN balance, we crave what keeps us IN balance.
