Do you LOVE FOOD, ENJOY LIFE 0r LOVE LIFE, enjoy food. ?
Recently, as the season of 'relentless feasting' came upon us Singaporeans, starting with the 'traditional' year-end holidays, celebrations and parties and then followed closely by Chinese New Year, it got me thinking about Singaporeans' attitude towards food, health and life.
We Singaporeans are proud of our food, we are even more proud of our LOVE of FOOD.
'I LOVE FOOD, I wanna ENJOY LIFE whilst I can, YOLO, You Only Live Once, Let's Eat!' is something we all hear all too often, I know and I must confess, I used to say that too. I was and am still a foodie, Despite being a medical doctor, I used to to celebrate the love of food without an appropriate & mindful counter balance of treasuring the gift of a healthy body.
However, ever since I accidentally embarked on this journey of practising, teaching, coaching and prescribing lifestyle as medicine, I realised I have changed. Now, I tell people I enjoy food but I LOVE LIFE more, so whilst I still actively seek out good food wherever I go, whether I am in Singapore or on overseas holidays with my beloved family, I now actively look out for good food experiences that are also good for our bodies.
This 'small' but significant change in my mindset from 'LOVE FOOD, ENJOY LIFE.' to "LOVE LIFE, enjoy food.' has dramatically changed my life.
Do you callously 'LOVE FOOD, ENJOY LIFE.' or do you treasure this God-given gift of life and a healthy body by having a "LOVE LIFE, enjoy food.' approach to life instead?
Go muse over it.
