Month of Thanks

Month of Thanks: Day 19

Day 19: Food

I am grateful for food and not just because it’s required for survival or gives me energy, but because it’s something that can truly be enjoyed in life. There are so many different ethnicities of foods, so many different dishes, and so many different twists to put on each dish. Two people can make the same recipe, and they’ll taste different. Food is something that can comfort, shock, torture, and invoke nostalgia.

Most importantly, food speaks. It tells a cook how to make it. It tells the chef how to spice it up. It tells the consumer a story. Each dish has origin and meaning, explained from the mix of flavors and ingredients used. Food is the fastest way to learn about someone. What they eat and what they cook tells us who they are. It tells us their heritage. Food, as simple as it may seem, is so much more meaningful than we may ever understand and I’m so grateful for it (even when I indulge too much and have to spend extra time at the gym. :p)
