Is it possible that how we eat is more important than what we eat? Maybe, just maybe, pleasure is immensely important in deciding whether a food is healthy or not.
Consider the Oreo cookie.
Sawyer eats with joy
Sawyer eats Oreo cookies daily but enjoys every moment of the eating process. While eating, Sawyer is in the moment and appreciates the art that went into creating such a delectable food. He eats them alone or with people without feeling any guilt. The pleasure is immense and he honestly doesn’t care what others think about his desire for Oreos. Sometimes he’ll eat only one. Sometimes he’ll eat 10. No matter, because Oreos provide a keen sense of joy for Sawyer.
Sawyer believes that what he eats is healthy. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Subway sub or a grass-fed steak or an Oreo cookie. He has no major health issues and is a glowing picture of health.
