Conscious Eating

I listened to a very absorbing Super Soul podcast this week in which Oprah spoke with Michael Pollan about conscious eating. He spoke about how in the past food was treated with so much more reverence & gratitude. People grew and harvested their own vegetables & fruit and therefore had knowledge & experience of the work it had taken to get it to the table. The family gathered & ate from one pot making it a truly communal experience. I’ve been vegetarian for about 30 years but found it interesting that Michael explained how meat was especially revered. In days gone by a priest would bless the animal and everyone would be thankful that it gave it’s life for them. It was a fascinating, engaging listen. I’d highly recommend it you’d like to think more about what you eat.
