Food is one of the most influential things that we as humans have. We are unlike any other species in that way. People are picky. Let’s face it, people are assholes. Dogs are so easy. They eat what is in front of them. We like to decide we don’t like things, or want them. We send back food, tell complete strangers that we hate what they prepared for us, and we even throw hamburgers out of anger.
Food releases passion. It may be the worst kind of passion, but food really does change our behavior. Hunger is mood altering. You can be at your worst when you are hungry, and at your best when you are full. We get so wrapped up in our meals, we forget why they are so important. Survival.
We don’t need to spend eleven dollars on a cheeseburger. We don’t need to go out and get a fifty-dollar steak, but we do. Why? We can. We understand the finer things in life, and we want them. Humans aren’t needy, they are wanty. I’ve spent over 150 dollars on a meal because I wanted it. I didn’t need it.
We do so much for the love of food. We spend so much money on things that we want, because we like them. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with this, I’m also guilty as charged. It is just amazing when you think about it.
You can fall in love with food as you do people. That one dish at the restaurant that you order every time you go there. That one establishment you choose to go to when it’s your turn to pick. That same love for food is one we all share, and some have the gift to be able to share it at a different capacity.
DeAndre is that guy. His love for food oozes from his words, and it makes you want to eat what he is cooking. The food passion is real, and we can’t wait for this food truck to roll out.
Food is Passion. Food is love.
