“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.” Brillat-Savarin
Ahem, hello?*tap*tap* Is anyone out there? *tap*tap* Is this microphone even on?
What is there to say that hasn’t already been said about food?
We are defined by the choices we make. And as Americans in the 21st century we are lucky enough to have choices. We eat like kings all day, every day, all the time.
Maybe how we define ourselves as eaters also defines us in other ways too: vegetarian, vegan, organic, low-fat, kosher. Maybe you don’t eat dairy. Or gluten. Or carbs. Or pork. Or any red meat. Or processed foods. Or foods that have travelled more than 100 miles to get to your kitchen. Or maybe you eat everything (if so, please come over for dinner immediately).
