 Links To Realizing and Living My Utmost Potential

Taste had been the driving force when I eat since I was young - eating all kinds of food items. It was also true when I became a vegetarian, a raw vegan and a fruitarian. I found out that the reason for this is because I use food to cover-up the perceived 'lack' in my life. 

This can be lack of a relationship partner, lack of friends, lack of something to do etc. which I attached to being incomplete. These are really my fears that I am trying to run away from and me running after the food I desire the taste of - to complete my 'experience of myself' in life.

The taste of food gives me a certain feeling of fullness and satisfaction which I interpreted as me feeling complete and happy. 

 I also prepare food that others will like so that they will feel satisfied and happy. 

The meaning of food was missed in the process of preparing food.

Food is a substance that nourish the body

I would like to look at this food preparation mind pattern here which is about preparing 'tasty food' used to please others:

>I want to cook tasty food 
>I know they would enjoy some exotic dishes
>so let me prepare exotic tasting meals
>something that they have not tasted yet
>that will make them happy and content
>then they will come and visit again
>if I do not make the food tasty 
>they will not come

Here, there is a desire that I am trying to satisfy through preparing tasty food for others. I always make sure I season the food well so that It will satisfy others and make them happy.

 This is true when I prepare food for guests. It is about me having a feeling that I have done something great which is not really what food is about. So, having realized this, i can forgive myself and correct this pattern.

The  video above was taken when I gave a cooking class where I decided to not add salt in the food that I was preparing. I ate it and really enjoyed it. The guests also enjoyed it. I realized it was just my fear of the food i prepared being disliked that stops me from serving low salt and low sugar food (bland food). In the video you will see that most of the students attending did not like to add salt to the food.

I realized from the class that there is a potential that can usher a new way of preparing food and this can be done in the food industry also. 

Instead of food being served in restaurants from the starting point of taste, we can decide to prepare food from the starting point of nutrition. It is about us changing the way we see food and prepare food. Change starts from us. We created these 'positive and negative judgments' within our minds so we can also un-create it. The world system is a reflection of ourselves.

 Animal meat, vegetables and fruits have their own subtle tastes. 

Vegetables, nuts, fruits and animal meat have their own sodium content,

Spinach = 24 mg
Pork =  1283 mg
Kiwi = 5 mg
Cashews = 3 mg


'We can indeed choose to prepare food in a way that we can experience its real taste.'
