We all need food to survive. But food is about more than just eating.
In my opinion, life is better with food prepared with a focus on freshness and flavor, made with love, and taken in good company — even if the food is repurposed leftovers and the company is your cats. It’s about pleasure as much as fuel, embracing nourishing options and healthy practices, not restriction or austerity.
All of these things bring me great joy. To me, this year’s National Nutrition Month® theme Savor the Flavor of Eating Right matches my own beliefs that if you relish the present, you nourish the future. With a focus on making healthy eating synonymous with eating well, the theme encourages creativity and exploration of new foods, cuisines, and cooking techniques to keep taste buds happy.
