Feed your body, mind and spirit! Learn the most basic of human experiences, how to be authentic! Be honest! Create a better relationship with your food and you can truly succeed as a mindful epicurean. The use of this knowledge will not only help you thrive in your affinity with your diet but also in relation to others. This is exactly the wisdom you will receive when you read this book! The Art of Quantum Food is understanding that quantity does not equal quality. Eating with mindfulness is healthy. Be grateful for your food. Give thanks to the beings that supply your nutrition. All simple in theory but driven back into the forefront by this book. I highly recommend this wealth of knowledge!
