MYST 142: What is food?

At the very basic level, food is energy and nutrients. It is what keeps our bodies functioning and growing. That is a pretty simple way of viewing food, but it is accurate.

But how do we treat food? Like it is a bandage, our counselor, our security blanket, and proof of our respect and love for others. Worse, we teach our children those same bad habits. Why are they bad habits?

They are bad habits because we misuse food for purposes that food just cannot perform.
