Looking Past the Plate: Primary Food and Authentic Nourishment

~Taught by Melissa Furneaux, BSc., HHC, RHN – Holistic Health Counselor, Registered Holistic Nutritionist

What in your life truly nourishes you? Sometimes we are fed not by food but by the energy in our lives. We hunger for play, fun, touch, romance, achievement, love, art, music, success, self-expression, excitement, adventure, and spirituality, and many other things….”Primary food” is more than what is on your plate, and when it is balanced and satiating, your life feeds you, making what you eat secondary. While modern nutrition, focusing on macro- and micro-nutrients, is a vital component of health and well-being, it is really only one source of nourishment. Healthy relationships, enjoyable physical activity, a fulfilling career, and a spiritual practice can fill your soul and satisfy your hunger for life.
