The wonder and beauty of food

We eat food everyday, at least most normal people do and in the process it’s easy to lose sight of the splendor and wonder of various food sources. With a hectic schedule most of us swallow with out really chewing and savouring the actual meal. Apart from the fact that this habit is bad for digestion it also robs us of the opportunity to experience the truth depth of a meal.

Have you ever taken a minute to look at the perfect symmetry of the cross section of a lemon?

Intro to Eat, Live, Love

Eat, Live, Love is really about using food to enhance your life and general well being. I don’t believe there are bad foods; however there are badly prepared foods. The various food sources we have access to have been gifted to us by God and we should enjoy it and use it nourish our bodies, build bonds of love around the dining table and share with the needy. Join me in the journey of eating, loving and living through food!
