“The way you eat is just as important as what you eat. The act of eating should provide a moment of respite during your day. After all, eating is the most fundamental act of taking care of yourself. While choosing nutritious, whole foods is one aspect of eating well, learning how to treat food with the consideration and respect it deserves—creating a good eating experience, whether alone or with your family—is equally crucial. Only when your attitude toward eating changes can food truly become one of the cornerstones of the balanced life—something that positively affects your life and brings you not just health but also pleasure and peace of mind.”—from Eating with Peace and Moderation
