A PAN, A LADLE AND THE SOUL

As a therapist of the mind and emotions, I can vouch the feel-good effects of a scrumptious meal on the cloudiest of days. The depredations of time and constant pressures at work and home push even strongest of souls to the brink of powerlessness sometimes. On such days, our inner strength begins to dip down and it becomes necessary to invoke the courage that hides within the dark crevices of our souls to surface and fight for us. In the deep recess of the kitchen lies one of the secrets. Yes, cooking and indulging in a soul-elevating meal can definitely be a way of encouraging yourself to keep moving ahead with re-animated determination.

There is an old Bavarian saying: Good food keeps the body and soul together. Evidence now suggests that our spiritual lives impact our relationship with food and that the foods we eat can affect our spiritual sensibilities. Soul-nourishing and lip-smacking food that could win over the most disgruntled taste buds could be the best approach to dealing with the blues. For it is the delightfulness of well-cooked food that will linger strongly on your taste buds reassuring you that ‘this shall pass too’.
