Food is such a huge part of our daily lives and cultures, that it is no surprise that we have created a lot of beliefs about our food: what it means, how it should taste and be prepared, who should prepare it, what nurtures us.
Here are a couple beliefs about food that I once held and no longer do:
~ food is the enemy, it is what makes me fat.
~ desserts are a treat for when I work hard. (You can see there is a bit of conflict between these two.)
And here are a few that I still hold:
~ food is fuel for my body.
~ foods that are fresh and less processed are healthier.
~ food can be a celebration.
For the minimalist, it is good to know what you believe, so you do not hold onto objects or beliefs that no longer serve your life.
How about you? Got any beliefs about food that you are willing to let go?
