"When you sit before colorful, beautiful food that nature has created, it's like nature's art, nature's palate. We take in those colors. They transform our bodies. And we have a connection to the people that grew those foods, to the land, to the water. It's a beautiful, almost spiritual experience to take in food in that way."

– Deanna Minich, PhD
