I don't eat consciously, with thought that this food is supporting my existence. I gobble down the food to fill the empty pit. What I would like to do is eat slowly and enjoy each bite of good nourishing food. Food which will give each cell and molecule its richness to keep the physical body in motion. Each bite I want to be respectful for the food and the process in which it came to me (not forgetting the loving creative ways in which it is delivered on the plate by my hubby).
I want to eat for health, medicate my illnesses and give my body and mind vitality. Since food is a human need and the earth provides it for us I want to give back to the soil.
One Man, One Cow, One Planet a bio dynamic farming documentary about a man called Peter Proctor inspired me to give back to the soil that feeds me.
