E for Eating Habits – Good, Bad & Ugly

We use to know our food – we grew it, we gathered it or we stalked it. I remember my parent’s huge garden. We would eat corn and green beans right off the plant. It was so good.
Now-a-days it seems my family has become separated from the source of our life.

But eating is also the heart of our culture – we use it to celebrate, socialize and grieve. Joy, comfort and grief are wrapped up in our food.
When we are not sure what to do we will reach out with food. It’s no wonder we can develop an unhealthy relationship with the source of our health.
My goal is to become a more conscious eater.

One of my family’s favorites.

Fast food and eating in the car is just about as ugly as it gets. I would put a picture, but I don’t want any evidence that I have ever done that.
Do you have foods you love that are not good for you or do you love the foods that are good for you?
