Thoughts on Food as Bonding

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 pm — Filed under:

Food is involved in so much of our lives that when we are learning to eat healthier, it can get in the way of so many things. Terry, at I See Invisible People, talks about her relationships, alcohol and food.

I love her thoughts here:

“When I was younger, my friends and I bonded through alcohol. Drive-in movies, dance parties, cutting school, just hanging, out all involved booze. If we were together, we drank. As much as our shared tattered backgrounds, liquor was the glue that held us together. It was the lowest common denominator between scarred kids with serious trust issues. Looking back on it, we had little in common besides our Underclass pasts and our reliance on alcohol. Perhaps this is why most of those friendships didn’t survive into adulthood.”

Is food the glue that is holding your relationships together? If so, how are you going to change that dynamic so you can live a healthier life?
