We live in an ever changing food environment. It’s inevitable that the world is going to change once again and while this happens, it is especially enlightening to see where we really started in terms of our food consumption. It’s funny, most of us don’t even realize the work that goes into the food we eat every day, when in reality that very same work is directly tied to the quality of the food that we eat. It is also interesting to look at a country as traditional as India and see how their view of food is so drastically different from our own, as they know first hand the effort that goes into each grain of rice and therefore respect food much more than we do as Americans. It is important to learn from these insights in order to educate ourselves in a more positive manner. It’s not just for us; it’s for our future children to live in a more culturally aware world.
