“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
ON A LOCKDOWN FOOD TRAILFood is a great enabler. A connector of unique sorts. It brings us together and unites us like no other. A laid out table of delicious spread can be such a great conversation starter. Click To Tweet
I’ve noticed in the past as well that when the times are tough, food does add a whole new dimension of happiness to our lives. Well, I guess we are the blessed and privileged ones who can indulge in good food that adds to our happiness quotient. Gratitude for that always.
I remember when my mother was in her last days of her onward journey, it was food that provided us the much needed solace. After spending many gruelling hours at the hospital, it was the meticulously planned and lovingly prepared spread by my sister-in-law that helped us keep afloat. Believe it or not!
Probably I’m saying all of this as we are a family of foodies.
But tell me does this thought resonate with you? Or not?
I’ve noticed in the last month or so, ever since the lockdown, more and more people are trying out myriad recipes and re-inventing their culinary skills. You may say, what else to do while locked-in at home? But doesn’t it say something about our innate desire to connect with food as a feel-good factor.
My family has been experimenting a lot with food, especially the younger one who loves to try her hand out at multiple things. It’s turning out to be a food orgy and I hope when all this is behind us my scales continue to tip in my favour. Well, I have been exercising too. So I’ll hold on to dear hope. 🙂
I also do believe food is a great enabler. A connector of unique sorts. It brings us together and unites us like no other. A laid out table of delicious spread can be such a great conversation starter.
Does food add to your happiness quotient? Or is it just another means to sustain?
I’d love to know your thoughts.
