ON THE MENU
1. provide with the food or other substances necessary for growth, health, and good condition.
2. keep (a feeling or belief) in one’s mind, typically for a long time.
Food that nourishes and company that sustains, those are the only truly essential ingredients to a gathering. When all those elements come together you have a beautiful, warm & loving experience that’s a source of sustenance far beyond the food on the table. Relationships first, appearances second. Always.
-Beth Kirby (Local Milk)
Our relationship with food is one of the most intimate we will ever experience. It’s the one thing we introduce into our bodies daily; the thing that literally sustains us, allows us to continue on.
Transformational nourishment means that our bodies, hearts, minds, and spirits are open and willing to take in the nourishment that’s offered. To do this, we have to believe that we are valuable and worthy to receive.
– Heart of Nourishment
And as I’m being nourished, other things are activated from my center and emanate out into my body. I’m charged with a kind of well-being, a kind of joy or bliss that connects me with that person. …I get filled with inspiration and my gratitude gets activated and it changes the way that I interact with whatever happens next in my life. I’m liable to want to make it more beautiful and want to unpack the potential in it.
