A Non-food but Nevertheless Venture
As I wrote in an earlier post, I’ve been re-evaluating my relationship with food as a part of the non-physical cleansing process. I say relationship, you say obsession, I say hobby, you say fetish… Whichever definition you choose, food and cooking tend to dominate most (ok...all) aspects of my life. Activities are positioned around meals, boredom is solved by munching, emotions are pacified by sweets, and elation is congratulated with treats. I seem to devote a lot of time and energy towards eating, cooking, and exercising which is just a necessary consequence of eating.
