quote about food

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
—  from Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl, Holocaust survivor and psychiatrist
I wanted to be as far away from the look of a psycho Ukrainian murderer,” joked the 28 year-old actress. “[This was] the most beautiful dress that I tried on. I thought it was so elegant and classic Old Hollywood, but also so comfortable. I thought I’d feel confident if I felt like I could move, breathe, even eat instead of sucking it in for five hours. And I need to eat. I am not one of those people who skips eating. This is so wild. It is exhausting, so I can’t imagine being at one of these things and not being rewarded with food. I was so relieved when I heard they feed you at the Globes.

The food we eat is so much more powerful than we realise.

It can determine the way we think and feel. It can alter how our body performs, how it looks and how it recovers. You could argue that it can make the difference between a healthy, happy, inspiring life, and one full of sickness, disease, stress and anxiety. The food we decide to eat can even impact the health of the planet we live on, and the many species of plants and animals we share our home with.

So it’s probably a good idea to make sensible choices. But that’s often much easier said than done. If it was so simple, we probably wouldn’t be facing the health crisis, and climate problems we face today.

The fact is that there is enough food in the world for everyone. But tragically, much of the world’s food and land resources are tied up in producing beef and other livestock–food for the well off–while millions of children and adults suffer from malnutrition and starvation.
