Food is what makes the world go around.Most people work to get their daily bread.
When we thank God every day we always thank God for our daily bread.
This bread signifies the love that God sends all his children.
I have written a lot about food and life.I even wrote an ebook on Fruits for Life.
I have written about food memories and healthy food but this is the first time I am getting a chance to formally thank food for being in my life.
I have a sweet tooth and a love for nonveg.Both can cause doldrums in the weight department.After becoming a mommy I realized God wants me to keep enjoying the food and told me to start walking every day.By choosing to eat the right kind of food, my cravings for the wrong kind has reduced.I still love my chocolates, everything else I can ignore.
When I think about food I feel its really Gods love in every morsel.
- The nourishment it provides.
- The warmth it gives.
- The sensory satisfaction we feel.
- The memories we cherish.
- It can fight disease and improve health.
Isn’t food the main reason we do everything?Only when you have your belly’s full and a roof over your head can you even think about saving the world.
Today when I thank my daily bread, I promise not to waste food.I promise to do my best to help someone get food on their table.I promise to take on my plate only that amount which will nourish me and give me strength.
Dear Lord our angel in heaven, give everyone their daily bread so that they can serve you and follow the path you show without hunger clouding their vision.
In today’s world, the diseases of undernutrition and overnutrition can all be fought if you just ate right.The problem is polluted soil, water,indiscrimate chemical usage in agriculture has bad the nutritional quality of even fresh food doubtful.
What can you do ?can you start an urban community kitchen garden?Can you help farmers farm profitably without compromising on quality?Can you help in making organic eco-friendly farming practices a reality?
Have you ever been hungry?Have you ever felt pain and you couldn’t eat ?what did you feel when you finally felt better and ate well?
