The topic of this post was inspired by a Washington Post article written by a dietitian that I read this morning, sent to my inbox by the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics.
The title of this post, however, was inspired by a 3-line conversation I had as an undergrad with a coworker while working our afternoon shift at the fitness centers. And while I’m fairly positive he would not even remember having this conversation, it has stuck with me enough to mention it in a blog post 6 years later.
Here’s how it went:
Anthony Bourdain dropped out of high school and started his career in the restaurant business as a dishwasher.
And this is no anomaly. It’s the beauty of this industry.
Sometimes, a feast is so much more than just a meal — yes, obviously in quantity of food — but in many other ways not to be overlooked. These gatherings are often times when families and/or friends (or friends who are family) come together to celebrate, catch up, hang out, and of course, eat.
…is what I’ve been saying for far too long now. Well, I finally took the leap and checked off something that’s been climbing its way to the top of my “I should really ___” list for what seems like forever.
