What is the condition that is referred to as "Food Insecurity"? After reading over the following article, I recognized myself, standing in the grocery store isle like a "deer in the headlights!". When you start "reading the box", you wonder, "does any of this make sense to me?" What is healthy, good food?? There are alot of voices in my head and it's only since I've begun my own personal quest to answer my own food questions has the fog begun to lift a little.
I have to say "thank you" to my dear husband, Roland, as his persistance and example has helped me to begin to open my eyes to understand the very real importance of my relationship with food and what I eat.
So, how does a person get to a point where they know that the food that they and their family consumes is, in fact, good, healthy food?
I think the two articles following raise some interesting questions and will give our minds "something to munch on".
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
