Food Outside the Box
What do you know about food? When we think about food, we mostly think about calories, nutrients, grocery shopping, and cooking. But that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Food can enrich our lives beyond eating and cooking.
Food is like a Swiss Army Knife. You can carry it in your pocket for years and only use it for the same one thing. But if you get curious and play with it, you realize that there are other things you can use it for.
When I say play, I don't mean that you should disrespect or waste food. I mean that you should engage with it in a playful way, which allows you to explore it outside the box and use it as a superpower on and off the dining table.
You can use food for health promotion. You can help your kids build healthy eating habits by getting creative with it. You can use it as a way to relax, have fun, and unleash your inner artist. You can even use it as a context for personal growth and self-empowerment.
Whether we're meat-eaters, vegetarians, or vegans, we all relate to food in one way or another. It is a universal language for communication we naturally learn to understand and speak.
There are endless ways we can benefit from food as a lifelong partner. And the best strategy to do that is to open up our minds and choose courage over comfort, curiosity over certainty, and creativity over conformity.
