Food is inherently spiritual but not often discussed. The one thing that all living creatures have in common is the need for nutrition. Food is necessary for all life. Many religions and cultures have rules about what to eat, how to eat it and when to eat it. Examining these rules can help us to become more grateful for the food we eat and develop a better relationship with the Divine. Growing and preparing food are excellent ways to show love for yourself, your family, your community and the Earth. When treated with respect and consumed in moderation food helps us to feel loved and connected to each other.
