YOUR LIFE A-Z: GASTRONOMICAL
HEALTHY EATING COMES IN MANY DELIGHTS
GASTRONOMICAL is the art and science of good eating by choosing, preparing and serving food to bring all of your senses together in a pleasant and fulfilling dining experience. The last two days has been a very inward journey of self –exploration. Today I invite you to look outward and inward at the same time. If this exercise will not work for today that is okay, but do take some time to plan it today. First think healthy food. Next, what healthy foods (fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, lean meat) do you enjoy? If you don’t want to prepare this dish for yourself, then which restaurant can you indulge your senses by planning a GASTRONOMICAL experience while dining out? Write down the dinner you want to plan with every side dish you will enjoy, plus a very nice desert. GASTRONOMICAL experiences must include a delightful and beautifully prepared desert. This dinner is not a reward; it is intended to be an experience that will allow your senses to come to life. As you imagine your perfect GASTRONOMICAL dinner what colors are on your plate? How is your plate of GASTRONOMICAL delight served to make it appealing to the eye? What aromas bubble up in your kitchen as you are preparing it or whiff upward from your plate as it is served? What is happening to your taste buds right now as you think about the perfect GASTRONOMICAL experience? Life is to be lived and it is always lived better through GASTRONOMICAL delight.
