In celebration of Eat for Life’s 50th episode, I’m exploring food.
What role does your relationship with food play in your life? Do you see it as good, bad, or neutral? Do you eat to live or live to eat?
Is food merely a means to an end or could it have a deeper significance than what the mainstream narrative tells us?
And what really is food, anyway?
How have we gotten so far away from the most basic definition of what food is, to an industrialized food supply that is making us sicker?
