The Joy of Good Food

The Joy of Good Food

Food has essentially become the go-to conversational icebreaker. There literally is never a bad time to talk about food.

Watch someone’s eyes light up at the mention of their favourite dish. Food conjures wonderful memories of home-cooked meals, images of mother or grandmothers prepping in the kitchen and a family-get-together - warmth and love on a platter.

Food is there to nourish your body and satisfy the innermost part of your reserved soul. But often we go to the excess, forgetting that what we eat affects us holistically- body, mind and soul.

Here are some food for thoughts to keep yourself in check:

? Start paying attention to your body. Notice how you feel after a meal. Are you feeling sluggish? Energised, bloated or queasy? Or pumped and ready to take on whatever comes knocking?

? Be mindful of what you eat. Take the time to go grocery shopping, select ingredients and make something from scratch. Cooking for yourself, is one way to be proactively conscious about your food choices and give you a sense of accomplishment, to connect with what you put in your body.

? Share the joy and take it ‘slow’. There’s no greater joy than to catch a breather with like-minded people over fine food and wine. It brings immense satisfaction. Host a dinner while you’re at it, make it a resplendent unforgettable one and invite your guests to partake and enjoy what you’ve prepared. If you’re looking for the perfect kitchenware to realise your dinner party, simply head to our eshop to browse from our curated selections of items.

? Everything in moderation. There are days to binge and eat to your heart’s content without limiting yourself. But there are days where you have to be conscientious. Start a healthy journey with your food and body. Cultivate good habits and if cooking is no-go, indulge in healthy fares that all our participating vendors are offering this month. Over 10 restaurants are showcasing their best takes on healthy food that you can simply grab and go or enjoy with good companies for a session of tête-à-tête.

? Eliminate all toxic thoughts and companies. How you feel affects how your food tastes. The next time you catch yourself saying something negative or thinking negatively, replace the thought with a positive one. Surround yourself with like-minded people with great vibes. Those elements go a long way to make you feel great, energised and feel like you’re able to conquer anything.

? Eat deliciously. All the food you eat, should be tasty and gratifying. Choose delicious food every single time rather than choke down food you don’t like but you think are good for you. Bad food may not necessarily be bad. Something healthy can be delicious and enjoyable to eat too. Fortunately if you don’t know how to whip up delicious healthy food, there are always places that are up for it. Restaurants who thrive in fresh ingredients and maximising the potential of each produce they work with, to cook delicious and nutritious food that will probably change the way you think about food you once disliked. Check out our dining directory to get a head start on where you to eat mindfully.

With the above in mind, it’s time to journey on a gastronomically gratifying route that will make you think about your relationship with your food because it is quintessentially what ‘the joy of good food’ is all about.
