Nourishment: Hunger/Satiation (Eyes)

Thursday, September 2, 2010

I really enjoyed the photos in this post, but what the images really highlighted for me was how much “diet” food is ugly. Either we don’t prepare it well, or it is a shake, or brown, dried, ascetic and aseptic.

There's an old saying, "The stomach is easier filled than the eye." and I think it's true... perhaps we eat more when the food is not pretty, seeking to fill a hunger we've "misplaced", mislabeled.

So this is a resolution: when we get home in a week or so I’m going to work on making our meals prettier. And we aren’t going to skip the mealtime blessing because it’s late, or just bread and cheese: every moment, every morsel, is precious.
