ART OF EATING – by Emily Wierenga

Of all the advice and counsel I have received toward recovery – this concept is the most powerful and moving and hopeful and leads me on:

That God has great delight in produce and bounty and blessing me with deliciousness

The idea that in food is community and fellowship and oneness. That Christ himself in giving for me the last measure – called his body my bread and his blood my drink

It is knowing this that sinks into my anorexic mentality and shatters the lies and traditions that I used to preserve my pride.
