There’s food that feeds the belly and food that feeds the soul. If you’ve ever had the latter, you know no matter what the cost of that meal, its value is immeasurable.
There’s a small restaurant that is near me that I love. The atmosphere, the people, the amazing handmade food is worth the hole in my wallet. At some point it isn’t about what you’re eating so much as it is about the experience altogether.
I had this amazing iced coffee with an open faced toasted pork ravioli and a fresh poached egg. Just to listen to people’s chatter and being greeted with a smile and asked how you’ve been doing was a nice break in this chaotic time in my life. And at the end of this beautiful meal to be blessed with a pastry on the house just because.
Those kinds of things can change your whole outlook on your day. It’s truly about feeding the soul not just the body.
One of my friends asked me what my soul food is… that meal or one food that feeds my soul. I don’t really have one. It’s more of an experience, just something handmade and delicious and an environment that is peaceful, charming, and feeds senses other than just taste.
But that is me… 🙂
Do you have a food that when you eat it makes your soul feel nourished? If so, what is it? If not, is it more about an experience that feeds your soul?
