This is a very famous quote from Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), who was a French lawyer and politician, and famous for great epicure and gastronome. He left many brilliant quotes concerning on “eating”. Here is some famous quotes.
“Dessert without cheese is like a beauty with only one eye.“
“The fate of a nation depends on the way that they eat.“
“I do love Big Mac.“
Oops! the last one is mine. And you can find many quotes from here. But, the most famous quote from him is absolutely this one.
“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.“
What a scary and pertinent remark. This quote still has a huge impact on me. Absolutely, your are made by your food you eat, and your body is rebuilt every seconds by the cells of your body. Therefore, the food matters. Better foods can bring better thoughts for you (some famous editor said in a magazine).
Then, I thought to create a kind of “food-shelf”, and tried to let people understand me through it about a half a year ago. And now, I am almost always taking a picture for every meals I eat and put it on my Instagram account. Since I am too lazy guy, I never follow anybody (except my mentor Takuya Kimura, who has just started his Instagram like the day before yesterday to be close to his fan under this weary pandemic situation.). But 3 interesting friends of mine are following my account. Here is my account.
And my Bento is like this.
But, the reality is, you can’t cook by yourself because it cost time to cook and suddenly you found yourself giving up standing before the kitchen. Then, you are having high cholesterol and strong taste convenience store bento. It actually tastes good though, you feel like a taste of chemical seasonings, and I will definitely catch a cold after eating 3 continuous days convenience store food (that’s just me maybe. I’m too naive).
I would like to be a better person by cooking or eating decent and interesting foods instead of eating too much convenience store kind of foods. Hope you have healthy eating life. Thank you very much for reading and have a good day or night.
P.S. The worst bento I’ve ever cooked. Tasted like a rubber tube.
