Something very simple, almost involuntary, which conceals a lot of us and our story. Choosing the food with which to nourish ourselves is something we learn from our families, influenced by local traditions and our lifestyle. The reason that leads us to choose the food we eat, whatever it is, tells something about us.
Our taste develops when we are children, based on what we eat. Growing up, we become increasingly demanding and aware of the fact that food is not just there to fill us up. Chosen with care and intelligence, it can even benefit our bodies and be pure enjoyment. That’s why conscious eating is an act of love towards ourselves.
Today, with all the technological and scientific progress, reflecting on ourselves and our actions is paramount. The level of civilisation, moral conscience, and our actions should move in parallel, developing fruitful systems and considering humankind as an integral part of a world where animals are recognised as sentient beings that feel pleasure and pain and, just as humans, have the right to live a full, long life with dignity. After all, recognising this principle is the expression of a form of awareness of oneself and love for our neighbours.
