The quote below comes from a blog titled SiciLean that I subscribe to. www.sicilean.com/2013/06
Be sure to read the entire tribute from the author to her 103 year old Sicilian grandmother who just died.
I love what she has to say about food as sustenance:
"Food assumed the role that it is meant to: food is sustenance.
Just think about the implications of that word, sustenance. It means that food should support us, nourish us, give us life and strength. How many people eat in a way that does all of those things? How many people, instead, use food to "numb out," and then experience frustration, deprivation, shame and guilt surrounding food?"
