Our favourite quotes about eating

As we celebrate here on our blog, food is not just a means to an end – to fill our bellies when we’re hungry – it’s so much more than that.

Yes, eating fills our gaps, but it also delivers nutrients our body needs, fights off illness and disease, gives us energy to move and think and do, is a primary activity around which gatherings are focused, is a prime component of culture, carries traditions, brings people together, and so much more.

Given its importance in our lives, we thought it’d be fun to gather some of our favourite quotations about food and eating.
