The Unique Gifts of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving reminds us to develop profound gratitude for food, its origins and all the hard work and sacrifice that goes into its production, harvest, transport, sale and preparation. The lessons that Thanksgiving teaches are those that we can use all year, each meal, each bite.

We honor food when we eat only that which nourishes us and a quantity of food that matches our needs. When we eat with inattention, Thanksgiving meals often show us, in very real terms, what happens when we become gluttonous and eat far past our limits. Such eating actually is the opposite of the spirit of Thanksgiving—to be especially observant of the value and purpose of our food.

This Thanksgiving, make it a conscious decision to honor your food and, in so doing, to honor yourself.
