Food is a critical part of our lives. No human can live a fulfilling and healthy life without access to healthy nutrition. This book reminds us that food is important and shouldn't be dismissed or ignored. It also reminds us of the rewards waiting for us if we take the time to consider food as precious and valuable.
Food means many different things to each of us. It can be easy to develop tunnel vision and forget about the complexity of how food can bring value to our lives. The first step is understanding that a mindset of apathy and dismissal regarding our daily interaction with food is not natural, and, in fact, taught to us through media and advertising. To move forward as a healthy culture, we must regain an appreciation for or build a new relationship with food. Reorienting our consideration of food can impact a variety of other issues that plague our society. Ultimately, food is the key to a satisfying and fulfilling life for ourselves and our neighbors.
