The Expression of Love Through Cooking
While making this delicious butternut squash soup for my family the words of Monica Castillo ran through my head. One evening while taking Monica’s “my open kitchen” class in Malibu , she was describing her joy for food and said ” when you cook for your family, that is an expression of love”. While cooking this butternut squash soup for my family today that statement really sunk in on so many levels. As I was looking at the bright vibrant colors of the squash, sweet potatoes, celery, curry powder mixed in with the pure white coconut cream I admired this amazing array of healthy food that only our amazing earth could grow for us. All the reasons I love to cook for my family became clear and connected. I show love to my family and this amazing earth by choosing foods that don’t negatively impact our environment and health. I show love through cooking by sharing delicious meals provided by mother nature that I know will nourish and heal our body. As we eat this loving vibrant food that was grown with kind intentions I express love to my family. Thank you Monica!
