Eating And Its Purpose?

Recently I’ve been asking what is the purpose of eating, really? And I thought it would be fun and very informative to open this up as a dialogue with everyone. What do you see is the purpose of eating? Let’s talk about it.

An easy way to share together is for you to ask the question, “What is the purpose of eating?” And then let the question go. No trying, no thinking about it, simply relax, go about your life, and see what clarity comes.

Then when a clear answer is available, share it with all of us. Simply scroll to the bottom of this page and click the box “Leave a Reply, Enter your comment here.” Let’s enjoy learning from one another.

For me, eating is for energy and magnificent health. Energy and health allow me to share my talents with others, supporting and serving them to have great health. And when I ask before I eat something, “Will this food give me energy and magnificent health,” it’s amazing what answers come and what I discover. Often I don’t choose foods that I thought I would. And it’s so fun and worthwhile to learn from my inner wisdom about how to eat and live this life.

So please join me and ask the question of yourself and share with all of us. I’m excited to hear from you! Also enjoy the pasta recipe below. This is so yummy, energy and health giving.

To You Amazing Health Effortlessly,

  1. I eat because I”m hungry,… and I love good tasting food,… I only buy food that is “good” for my body at the grocery shops. Wanna live a life full of energy,… 🙂 Christine from jolly ole Canada 🙂

    • Dear Christine,
      I love your beautiful energy that you warmly share with everyone.
      Eating for hunger is a great thing.I know some say seldom do we eat from hunger, and that hunger. Buying good food with lots of nutrients is, as you know, the way to keep high energy levels.
      Beautiful. Thank you so much for your share.

  2. Dear Connie,

    Food provides nutrients to sustain life. I like to think that eating goes beyond keeping us functional. I particularly enjoy sharing meals with friends that have been prepared with care and love. I love slow cooking with fresh ingredients. I have bread rising in the kitchen at the moment and look forward to the fresh loaves later this morning.



    • Dear Joan,
      Thank you for your focus on nutrients and cooking with fresh ingredients. Are you familiar with the High Nutrient Dense scale? You can enjoy it in Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s book, Eat to Live. Or check it out on his web:
      It is wonderful you are baking bread. Have you ever made a rye sourdough? Sourdough is encouraged by Macrobiotics as a very healthy bread.
      Delightful to hear from you,

  3. I have eaten Connie’s delicious pasta recipe for the second night – even with Halloween interruptions the meal tastes wonderful. I love food and especially ‘good for me’ food. Thank you Connie for all the healthy, great tasting recipes.

    • Dearest Gloria,
      Thanks so much for your sweet words. I love this pasta sauce and it is such a beautiful dish to serve others.
      And thank you for caring about your health with such love to enjoy life at its fullest.
