Food says a lot about who we are. Cultures and peoples define
themselves in part by what they eat and how they eat it. The choice,
preparation and sharing of food not only reflects the climate and
geography of a place but also elementally shapes the society.
Sharing food and meals bonds people together, and is an important
cultural and societal glue.
Currently what our food is saying about us is not good. We’re
industrialized, denatured, chemically enhanced. Fake. And, always
focused on speed over nutrition, profit over sustainability and
quantity over quality. Part of what’s happened in our fast-food,
pre-packaged food culture is that we are no longer intimately
familiar with what we eat, where it comes from, how it is made, and
what it is like in its natural state. Preparing our own food is one
of the best ways to easily follow The Diet Code – and one of
the best ways to get back in touch with what we eat. That’s the way
to free yourself from the fearful ways we sometimes approach food
and eating, and begin connecting with the pleasure and satisfaction
of good food well prepared.
Real food like what’s recommended on The Diet Code has more
flavor and more sophisticated fragrances, which get you excited
about what you are eating. Real food also takes longer to eat,
longer to chew. It spends longer in your mouth, which ultimately
improves digestion and absorption of nutrients, and you spend longer
at the table eating a smaller amount of food (calorically speaking).
You then have plenty of time to notice when your body is telling you
it has had enough. After all, food is just one part of the best
meals. The other is the company. With real food on the table, you’ll
have plenty of time to enjoy both.
