“Last week I was at a posh restaurant, because pretending to have money with mediocre savings is this new and dangerous trend I have undertaken. Dessert being my ultimate weakness, I made a big deal out of the pre-dessert and dessert. Meringuelets shrouded in freeze-dried raspberries, swimming blissfully in Chantilly. Then, a brown sugar tart with a delicate scoop of stem ginger ice cream. The ice cream melted atop the chocolate mousse nestled under a ski
y membrane of coffee jelly, and I started to think about the unspoken co
ections between food, body and mind.
To start, Iu2019d just like to say that there is a need for clarification in any field of knowledge. But there are surprising twists, and in this case of course Iu2019m talking about the wild, young, uncertain world of nutrition. There are lots of irrefutable nutrition facts, like how we as humans need certain nutrients to grow and develop properly, keep our brains and bodies optimally functional. There are different people who undertake theories in different ways and with very different behaviours. You have X, who treats this whole nutrition thing very, very seriously. He has a Vitamix to keep his wild green soul satiated in the morning, and a spoonful of blackstrap molasses mixed and heated with turmeric and perhaps just a dash of spirulina at night. Turkey is good and everything else might kill him. He gets shifty at restaurants. And all that being said, the variations of X, whatever diet culture he may adhere to, are endless. Thereu2019s Y, who likes to run and have an apple every day. He tries, but may forego the strict gym session. Then thereu2019s people like me with incredible levity, who are interested and read up on all the latest finds, but still donu2019t mind the occasional cake-gorge and wine splurge (yes wine is good for you, but do you know how many bottles you need to get a desirable amount of resveratrolu2026?).
I guess X is the good sir I would like to elaborate more on now. His soul is bright when he churns the kale and frozen bananas at precisely 8 ou2019clock every morning, pouring it into a clean and wholesome Mason jar. Mind you, this is all fictional, and Iu2019m just keeping in line with less ubiquitous letters-of-name-begi
ings, so bear with me. The drink is delicious, and I would agree. He says he is better than the 18-year-old X who dined on sausages and milkshakes without a qualm, all those years ago. Heu2019s right, and yet not quite so. Has it ever dawned on you (yes you, dear reader), that eating, despite being this magical, holistic ritual, this beautiful constant fest of discovery and perhaps healthfulness, is downright scary? No matter what you consider yourself, how healthy, how vegan or carnivorous, that we are still somewhat the same? No matter what, we must consume other lifeforms to sustain ourselves, and in doing so we transmit energy from one to the other.”
