Tell me what you eat and I will tell you who you are…
What we eat says so much about our temperament and our lifestyle : foodie, environmentalist, vegan, lactose intolerant… A look at your plate gives so much away.
Food is a strong cultural marker. For proof, just look at each country’s different eating habits. In France, it’s fois gras and baguette; in Morocco, couscous and mint tea; the Chinese eat rice, the Germans sausages and the Italians pizza. Far from being a cliché, such habits are real because they are an intimate part of family life from as far back as we can remember. Meal after meal we eat what gives us pleasure. When we travel, for example, we feel like eating something that isn’t readily available in that country. Eating is, therefore, not just responding to a primal urge, it is enjoying ourselves, meeting others, taking care of ourselves. It’s an act that is far from trivial.
Everything we eat is a tiny part of us. Whatever we eat is in a small way part of our body. That’s not something to be sniffed at! For many people, it’s an incentive to make more responsible choices when it comes to what they eat. Put simply, making the right choices and offering our bodies healthy (unprocessed) food is giving them the best we can. It’s boosting our chances of staying healthy. At the end of the day, the way we look speaks volumes about what we eat.
Offering ourselves the best
What exactly does this mean for our body? It’s also a question of lifestyle: work, responsibilities, children, sport… These are also factors that determine what and how we eat. Sometimes, we just don’t have the time to cook, to buy fresh produce or even to grow out own fruit and vegetables. We want to offer our body the best we can without disrupting our daily routine. It’s all a question of balance.
Let’s start by trying to eat as little processed food as possible. Opt for fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, whole grains… Wherever possible, opt for organic or fair trade products, without preservatives, without additives, without chemical or synthetic colorants or fragrances. What is simple can be both good and tasty – a return to those natural things that help us cope with the rush and bustle of our everyday lives.
