I loved the way you explained how we have to perceive a meal and then go about flavoring and preparing it - meal time is fun that way."  – E. Apr, 2020 Replace the processed, empty calories, nutrient sterile foods of most modern diets with real whole foods that provide richer taste, a fuller complement of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Your body will love you as you experience natural tastes, increased feelings of satisfaction, pleasure, reduced hunger (as real food increases satiety) and enjoy happier moods and increased immunity by choosing mood and immunity enhancing foods.

To create Happy foods that do us well, satisfy hunger, and increase true pleasure in eating we must also consider: how we eat, how it is prepared, our emotional state (preparer, eater, and company) and when possible increase our conscious involvement to impact our experience and health.
