“Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale.” Elsa Schiaparelli

FOOD is SUSTENANCE: Do you remember the last time you ate your most favorite food on the planet? How about a joyful memory of food shared with loved ones on a very special occasion? What about a funny, sad, adventurous or even scary moment you had with food? You see, food is a great equalizer and, like life, it helps us create memories and milestones that we cherish throughout our lives.

I’ve always loved good food and I suspect that it had a lot to do with my mother. She was a terrific cook and studied catering back in the day when more women chose that area of study because of career limitations. She loved to experiment and we got to try all sorts of exotic and exquisite foods. Of course, my favorite food is tied to childhood memories of being nurtured, protected and fed food that made me feel better, even though it wasn’t a pill. But then again, food is medicine and we can heal our bodies with the right combination of food and therapeutic medical treatment. So grab a cuppa, click on any link here and enjoy the food stories I’ve shared. More will follow.

Food plays an important role in all of our lives. We need it for sustenance,  we gather to enjoy it with friends and family, and we use it to celebrate special occasions. I’ve written a number of posts on food but, recently, my kids encouraged me to create a dedicated page to feature our recipes, our love for fresh ingredients, and the joy of good food.

This is a new page and it will be a repository for all things food; recipes, stories, reviews, special offers and more. If you’d like to share a good story with me or would like me to write a review or taste test a food, please contact me at: Contact(@)mirthandmotivation(.)com.

FYI – I’ve added a few trackbacks below for your easy perusal.. There are more food related posts on this blog and I plan to add to this list soon.  My first food feature is a Green Beans Medley. Hope you enjoy it. Thank you for stopping by!

 

Positive Motivation Tip: Enjoy  the foods around you and don’t forget to give gratitude and share.
