When it comes out our most basic needs, food is up there with oxygen and personal space, and yet we’ve come to talk about it rather disrespectfully. After the age of the industrial food revolution, we stopped seeing food as a valuable, useful and even rare commodity. Instead, it became this grossly mass-produced thing that we now have to work to avoid eating too much of, rather than work to make sure we get enough of it. We’ve forgotten that food is fuel. Instead, we see it like so many other things– a problem. And that’s a shame, because (and not to sound like your mother when you wouldn’t finish your food as a kid) there are a lot of people in this world who would love to have the food that you talk so much smack about. It’s also a shame because we shouldn’t feel or perpetuate negative feelings about food. So here are ways you should stop talking about food today.
