This is why I appreciate the simple but oh so necessary human need that we all have-eating. Sure, we could simply go to the store and buy months' worth of Spaghetti O's, Lean Cuisines and protein bars to live on or hit up Subway, Chicl-Fil-A, or Wendy's when our hunger strikes. But taking the time to make what you eat creative, personal and special gives you a connection to where ingredients are made or grown, why we use these particular ingredients, and what cultures from which these ingredients originate. Preparing and trying foods from different cultures is our passport to the world without ever having to leave your home town. Although, it may inspire you to do so. I hope that you too will appreciate how easily we can enrich our lives and families' lives by taking the time to be mindful and interested in what we eat. After all, we are what we eat.
