There is nothing like the pleasure of going out to the garden, harvesting a few vegetables, and then preparing a beautiful, nourishing meal.
No plastic, no pesticides to wash off, no wondering about how far your food was shipped or how long it languished in some warehouse.
Just pick and eat.
We take a special pleasure in our meals, knowing the labor and the love that's gone into each harvest.
The closer you look, the more you see that every growing thing is a thing of beauty, that every growing thing shares resemblances to its relatives, but is unique in its own right.
Food is light, literally . . . and everytime we eat, we are taking part in the great cycle of life and death.
To eat with awareness is to eat with reverence.
