I think about food more than some people and less than others. I mean, I know that I should eat to live and not live to eat. (The same could be said about the consumption of other things, like wine and coffee). So, while I really have no problem with not letting food control me, I spend a lot of time choosing the best things to feed my body–most of the time. Sometimes, though, it’s easier to eat a sandwich of Ezekiel bread and natural peanut butter. No, it isn’t incredibly unhealthy, but how much time do I actually put into preparing it? I just mean that I think we should enjoy the preparation of the food as much as the consumption. I will be working toward that in the coming weeks.
The soup was prepared by my sweet friend, Maxine. It’s a North African Chicken Vegetable Soup. Oh, golly, it was delicious. It was healthy, could have been vegetarian, and incredibly tasty. Maxine inspires me to do more of what I enjoy.
