Day 84: f*ing friday :: food

25 Mar

Today continues the weekly series, F*ing Fridays, which will coincidentally occur on Friday. I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5, including: Fearless, Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.

Last week I dove into the word Fuel.

Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the word:

As in, what you eat.

Food is love.
And love, is also Food.

Whether it be radishes or relationships.
We digest both.

Formaggio and Friends.
Frankfurters and Family.
They are both Food.

Here’s my point:
We wear both and both wear on us.

Food drapes our body, hips, face, mind, spirit.

Food nourishes.
Food provides.
Food comforts.
Food builds.
Food transforms.

And it adds more than just love handles.
Do you have a handle on your food?

What about junk food?

And I’m not just talking about the pre-packaged Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Yahoos of the edible kind.

I may not be able to cook a 7 course meal, but I do know this:

If we let Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Yahoos into our relationships, or our work, family, and friends — well, it will tear down the head, heart, body & soul.

Unfortunately, there was a time when I lived it too.
With a bad marriage, a bad boss, a bad commute, and bad friends.

Junk is junk.
And sometimes it’s not just on your plate.

Since I have spent an intensive year studying at Integrative Nutrition, I have learned over 100 diets and the way people eat.

But above all else, I have learned this:

Food is love.
Love is food.

We can’t separate the two.

And, it is the most important reason to watch what you eat.

Buon appetito!
