You Are What You Cook

You are what you eat. You are what you read, watch, and listen to. What you consume becomes part of you; what you absorb shapes you.

At the same time, you are what you cook. You are what you produce, create, and perform. What you do defines you; what you accomplish confirms your purpose.

We live in the consumer age. Our culture strives to minimize the amount of time cooking and maximize the amount of time eating. We want fast food and delivery. Calling a real person at the store is too much effort – we want the food to arrive at our door with the click of a mouse. Soon, clicking will be too much effort. We will think about our favorite dish, and instantly it will appear on the table.

Are we progressing or regressing? The more we consume, the less we create; the more we eat, the less we cook. Let the next age we live in be the producer age.
