“Sensory food is what we take in with our senses and our mind—everything we see, smell, touch, taste, and hear.

External noise falls into this category, such as conversations, entertainment, and music.

What we read and the information we absorb is also sensory food.

Perhaps even more than edible food, the sensory food we consume affects how we feel.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh
from Silence: The Power of Quiet in a World Full of Noise 


Worth remembering.
Nature is wonderful sensory food
– we need to spend more time in it.


Chocolate cake

Foodie Quote:

“He showed the words ‘chocolate cake’ to a group of Americans and recorded their word associations.
‘Guilt’ was the top response.

If that strikes you as unexceptional, consider the response of French eaters to the same prompt: ‘celebration.’ “

– Michael Pollan, from In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto

Hmmm, I wonder which attitude towards food is healthier??
