Yes, fuel your body… but let’s not forget that food, and cooking food, also gives us precious opportunities to learn more about and reconnect with our food, others and ourselves.
In a world of instant and on-the-go ready-made meals and snacks, it’s even more important that we embrace these kitchen moments and meal times to get more involved in the process of feeding ourselves. This sense of independence, as well as connection with others, is probably what gives us the pleasure from food more than just as metabolic nourishment.
