"Tell me what thou eatest, and I will tell thee what thou art."
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1970)

Of course nothing is as black and white as the above statement would lead one to believe. Hidden in this statement is a truth that might read, "thou eatest, thou art." 

There is an art to eating and it could be said, eating is an art. Inherent in that statement is the idea that there is no right or wrong way, there is only your way for expressing what is true for you. The world is full of dietary techniques and patterns and plans that are masterfully designed. But, as the artist of your own life, you can only practice from these for so long until it gets boring or you outgrow the diet plan. 

The trick is giving it your own breath of life and creativity. In other words, perceiving eating as an art and finding your own art to eating, gives way to an experience of creativity, where for a moment you and the divine are one.
