I feel like I have had several personal transformational moments in the last couple of weeks. I have started reading Barry Glassner’s “The Gospel of Food” and was struck by the way that he begins the book: “The word ‘enjoy’ appears in the official dietary guidelines issued by the governments of Britain, South Korea, Thailand, and Australia. Norway comes right out and declares, ‘food and joy = health.’ The United States’ dietary guidelines, faithful to our Puritan roots, say nothing about enjoyment. It’s high time we correct that omission” (2007, p. 1).
