Food is one of life’s greatest pleasures. We all feel the same peckish tingle of anticipation when warm aromas are wafting from the oven, and we know the deep contentment that can descend at the end of a good meal.
But eating well is not just a joy, it is also a skill. You will get more out of your food if you understand what food is, what good (and bad) things different foods contain, how much nourishment you need, and how to be sure you are getting it.
It also pays to know how food affects every aspect of your physical and mental health. Some people have found that a very minor change in their eating habits can transform for the better their whole sense of well-being. That old saying – you are what you eat – is barely an exaggeration.
And let’s not forget that food can be a big adventure: cooking and tasting new things, sharing dinner with friends, all the alchemy of the kitchen and the dining table – these are things that few of us would like to be without. ‘It’s good food,’ said the French playwright Molière, ‘and not fine words, that keeps me alive.’
