Food has very specific functions.
At it’s most basic; it’s about sustenance, giving you what you need to survive.
But food, in its high order function, is very much about nourishment.
Nourishing the body, so the spirit can flourish.
It’s about keeping you in a healthy state,
A state of equilibrium
So you can perform at your best in every situation.
It also has a way of bringing people together; communing over a meal is as natural and old as time itself.
Food was never intended to be ‘fast’
It wasn’t intended to be devoid of its nutritional value
Keeping you overfed and under nourished.
Our relationship with food has fundamentally changed.
Where once we ate to survive, we now eat as entertainment
Where we once took only what we needed, we now indulge
Where we once protected food as an essential resource, we now throw it away.
We are no longer connected with its source,
