Wholesome Living, Celebration & Gladness of Heart

Mormon-Hippie-Wholesome-Living,-Celebration--Cake-photo-by-wikimedia-commons-CdnStarSeveral years ago, I attended a lecture by Michael Pollan at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City, Utah.  He had been invited by the “Slow Food Utah” organizers and his subject was about the nature of food, our environment, and healthful eating. He displayed on a very large screen a photo of a decadently rich and luscious slice of chocolate cake.  The reaction, as he expected, was a collective groan of desire and guilt from the audience.  He went on to say that in America that is the general reaction.  However, in France, the reaction is one of Celebration!

One of my favorite books is French Women Don’t Get Fat:  The Secret of Eating For Pleasure by Mireille Guiliano.  Not only is it an absolutely delightful and inspiring read, but it seems to me that the French people seem to understand and live the Word of Wisdom!  There are a few things I personally set aside — the author builds a pretty persuasive case for enjoying a glass of wine with dinner!  But I live by my rules!

Consider a few of the French philosophies found in French Women Don’t Get Fat:

Mormon-Hippie-French-Women-don't-get-Fat

As we study, ponder and pray, a new perspective and attitude toward food and healthy living takes shape, and a new kind of gratitude flows from deep within as we receive the wonderful blessings and experiences good food offers us.

In the Doctrine & Covenants, Section 59, the Lord commands the saints to righteous living and offers these words:

Yea, blessed are they whose feet stand upon the land of Zion, who have obeyed my gospel; for they shall receive for their reward the good things of the earth, and it shall bring forth in its strength.

Verily I say, that inasmuch as ye do this, the fullness of the earth is yours . . . the herb, and the good things which come of the earth, whether for food or for raiment, or for houses, or for barns, or for orchards, or for gardens, or for vineyards;

Yea, all things which come of  the earth, in the season thereof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart;

Yea, for food and for raiment, for taste and for smell, to strengthen the body and to enliven the soul.

And it pleaseth God that he hath given all these things unto man; for unto this end were they made to be used, with judgment . . . D&C 59:3 16-20 (italics added)

I believe we can, with gratitude and not remorse, indulge in beautiful, festive, and delicious celebrations that bind us as families and friends and cultures.

Let’s Celebrate!
