In recent months, I have developed an deeper appreciation for food. In previous posts, I mentioned the importance of organic food. This has since developed into an understanding of the preparation of good food.
Much of western society seems to have turned to a ‘convenience’ food; buying pre-packaged meals, or eating out. People seem to have lost sight of how satisfying and also nutritional, making your own food can be. It may take a little bit more of your time to prepare a meal, but to sit down at home with a meal you have prepared is the best way of nurturing yourself.
Tonight, I took a little extra time to cook a meal for my family, looking on the Internet for good recipes, making the meal as tasty as possible. It took very little effort, but received a great deal of appreciation and eating together as a family is also very valuable.
