Here is my attitude on food: Tell me what you eat and I’ll tell you who you are!
For me, food is so much more than just fuel our body uses to keep functioning normally.
Food seems to be one of the few things that connects people always and everywhere. Wherever I used to live, I would always make my first acquaintances with people in a restaurant, at a coffee shop, or through home-made cuisine. Food speaks volumes about our origin, culture and hygiene of life.
In my family, we base our diet on vegetables, whole grains, but also on proteins of animal origin. Yes, we also consume meat, kephir and eggs, but we try as much as possible to consume those we know where they came from, and we strive not to eat them every day. However, I make my best efforts to keep my children away from industrial products of all categories. Petra is already terrified of chewing gums which makes me a super happy mum!
And most importantly – we tend to have a proper family meal at least once a day. It is a special time when we can share our experiences, worries and find solutions to our daily problems. This is the ritual my dad insisted on as I grew up and now I want to follow in his footsteps and keep the tradition going.
Family lunch is a magnet that holds the family together.
