Food has a very specific function and at its most basic; it’s about sustenance, giving you what you need to survive.

But food is still very much about nourishment.

It’s about keeping you in a healthy state,

A state of equilibrium

A state of connection, bringing people together.

Food was never intended to be ‘fast’

It’s not supposed to be devoid of its nutrients, keeping you overfed yet undernourished.

Our relationship with food has fundamentally changed.

Where once we ate to survive, we now eat to entertainment ourselves

Where we once took only what we needed, we now indulge

Where we once appreciated having a meal to eat, we now throw it away.

We are no longer connected with its source,

We don’t know where it came from or how it was prepared or harvested.

We have no idea what has been added or removed

We don’t know how long it sat on a ship, or a truck or in a refrigerator before it made it to our table.

That personal connection is gone and with it, the soul.

You can subscribe to whatever diet you want, but there’s no substitute for natural living

Clean food, in season and close to its source.

Nourishing the land, so it can properly nourish you

It’s a relationship

And it’s within this relationship, that soul food is born.

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
