Organic or not, food just might make the world go ‘round.
We bond around the dinner table
We feed our body’s basic and complex needs with it
We fight or invite disease with the choices we make
We can explore diverse cultures through it
We wage battles of “daring do” (jalapeno eating contests)
We compete for notoriety (county fair or international bake-off)
Some eat dessert first
Poetry is written about it (Shel Silverstein’s Italian Food)
Movies are made about it (Babette’s Feast and Chocolat)
Lovers express feelings with it (chocolate for Valentine’s Day)
The broken hearted use it for comfort (chocolate for the other 364 days in the year)
We dream about it.
