“The Creator, by making man eat to live, invites him to do so with appetite and rewards him with pleasure.” Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Do you eat to live or live to eat? We all love to enjoy our favorite food with our loved ones, but what if you had to choose a few to consume every day. If you could only pick five (5) foods to live on for a year or longer, which foods would you pick? What five foods are calling you right now to pick them? What draws you to those foods? Could you eat them for the rest of your life?
According to Joel Fuhrman, “Our body is like a machine. If we constantly run the machinery at high speed, it will wear out faster. Since animals with slower metabolic rates live longer, eating more calories, which drives up our metabolic rate, will cause us only to age faster. Contrary to what you may have heard and read in the past, our goal should be the opposite: to eat less, only as much as we need to maintain a slim and muscular weight, and no more, so as to keep our metabolic rate relatively slow.” Joel Fuhrman, Eat to Live: The Revolutionary Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss.
What is your food story and which foods would you never give up?
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Plinky: Name five foods you’d hate to live without.
Positive Motivation Tip: Food is important to our survival but we can’t be rigid about it; eat healthy but indulge your sweet/savory tooth sometimes.
Until Next Time…
