Will Work For Food

Daily Draw: Chinese Tarot ~ 7 of Coins

A nun begging for alms, carries a fly whisk as a reminder that all creatures deserve life.

I'm reminded by this card that my house is stuffed with food and what it cost us the past few weeks to get it that way. When we came back after living away for a year the cupboards were truly bare and we had some weird meals before we had time to top up things.
I don't know where I'm going with this except it is a crying shame that going to the grocery and buying nutritious food costs more than going to the nearest fast food vendor. And the American butt and belly shows this disconnect between health and pocketbook.

Too many great quotes to limit to just one.
Man Is What He Eats ~ Lucretius
Processed foods extend the shelf life, but they extend the waistline as well. ~ Karen Sessions
Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork. ~ English Proverb
He that takes medicine and neglects diet wastes the skills of the physician. ~ Chinese proverb
Our food should be our medicine and our medicine should be our food. ~ Hippocrates
Those who think they have no time or money for healthy eating, will sooner or later have to find time for illness. ~ Edward Stanley

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
