“When I’m PMSing, the only thing that can cheer me up is a big bar of chocolate!”
“I can only enjoy a movie, when I have a big bowl of butter popcorn for company”
“It’s been long, we need to catch up! Why don’t you come over for lunch?”
“I’ve got a huge craving for mom’s food.”
“We have to celebrate this dude, let’s go out!”
What is one thing that’s common in all the above statements? You got it, Food!
The old idiom was, “Eat to live, but don’t live to eat.” I don’t agree with it. Food isn’t a chore; it’s not something like brushing your teeth or doing laundry, something that just needs to be done. Food is a huge part of our lives, we eat when we celebrate, we eat when we are sad, we eat when we are happy, and we eat to while away time. We enjoy eating with family on the dining table. We enjoy eating straight from the bowl sitting in front of the TV, we enjoy eating roadside food, we enjoy eating sitting in a swanky restaurant, we enjoy eating at weddings, and we enjoy eating home cooked meals. So then do we just eat to live? No, we eat to celebrate life, I’d say!
