Food as Fuel

Posted on

Food gives us vitality, a reason for coming together, and essential vitamins and minerals for life. For many people, food is seen as a ‘necessary evil’ – with health and taste being mutually exclusive. It can take a while for certain palates to become accustomed to clean flavors, but we assure you, healthy food can taste great! When we eat the right food, for the right reasons, our bodies function at their optimal state.

When we think of food as a comfortable place after a rough day, a reward for something we did well, or a replacement for dealing with emotions, it’s easy to stop taking care of ourselves. The idea of ‘Food as Fuel’ encourages us to eat for sustenance rather than pleasure. That doesn’t mean healthy food is boring, instead, it teaches us to enjoy each bite. We eat together to bond with others, and we eat to give our bodies the energy to live well.

Take note of how your body functions when you eat certain foods. Do you feel tired afterwards? Are you hungry an hour later? How does your digestive system handle the food? At Catering Central we highly value health and whole foods. We believe food plays a vital role in not only physical, but emotional health. Our social lives strengthen by building relationships over food, leading to a greater level of connectedness with the world around us. If you’re interested in having your next San Francisco Bay Area (94110, 94024) private or corporate event catered by a company working from this philosophy, call us today on (650) 961-3300. We can’t wait for your call!
