Of course, such an approach has it's use, but it's no different than assessing a great work of art by analyzing the pigments in the paint. Some common overlooked nutrients that you won't see on a food label: Vitamin L - Love, Vitamin P - Pleasure, Vitamin Q - Quality, Vitamin S - Smiles... What’s your favorite Vitamin?

Metabolism can cause events to happen, but it is itself an effect. It is the effect of your life, your existence, your soul. It is a mirror image of your sacred form, the material portal for cosmic forces, a momentary abode for your eternal spirit.

Many people think of food as merely a bunch of nutrients that you eat or something that simply exists to fuel your body. Those who have eating concerns or challenges tend to look at food as a problem, as the enemy, or as something we have to overcome because it’s so powerful and makes us lose control. Well, it’s time to see food in a new way. In this great video from #IPEtv, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, shares how food is a doorway. Our challenges with food presents for us an amazing opportunity to make some discoveries about ourselves that can forever change who we are. We think this video will help you make some fascinating connections and discoveries! In the comments below, please let us know: How has food been a doorway in your life? And where has that doorway led you to?

So may of us use food as a substitute for love these days. Yet, food truly is love. The connection between food and love gets intertwined right from the beginning of life. We cannot escape the reality that eating is a gift, a pleasure, it’s nourishment, it’s life, and when we are provided with food, it’s a beautiful affirmation of love. Check out this powerful video from #IPEtv, where Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating shares some great insights around food and love. In the comments below, please let us know: What are the ways that “food as love” has been a positive and nourishing experience for you?
