The Idiom Food for Thought artwork is one in a series of mixed media/collages that I created. I love seeing these printed on a smaller scale. The Idiom Food for Thought note card is perfect for the word-obsessed (like me) or for foodies. I decided to offer these cards on a larger scale since many of you have requested prints and cards of my photography and artwork. I am also available for family photo shoots. You may contact me here.
“Everything we do is for the purpose of altering consciousness.
We form friendships so that we can feel certain emotions, like love,
and avoid others, like loneliness.
We eat specific foods to enjoy their fleeting presence on our tongues.
We read for the pleasure of thinking another person’s thoughts.”
– Sam Harris
“What should I eat?” I get asked this question all the time.
You would think after studying nutrition the answer would come easily. But by far the most valuable thing I learned at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition was that the old adage “One man’s food is another man’s poison” is spot on. We were taught theory after theory (each one seemingly made perfect sense), and then left to discern which ones we thought were valid.

In the end, it became clear that there is no one diet that is beneficial for everyone, no “one size fits all”.
Some people fare better eliminating most or all meat from their diet while some individuals living a vegetarian lifestyle find themselves with a host of physical ailments.
