Why Food? I was born in a big family which is extremely good interaction with relatives in the countryside of Turkey. I and my family members always gathering for talking and listening to each other, traveling and having a wonderful time in our amazing natural environment of my hometown. Now I realized that there is one common thing that brings us together. There had to be a great, valid and valuable reason to meet. Somehow, when my elders would like to meet, they always appoint a place for eating. So, food has the power of integrative element to make people together. That's the reason why I opened a food blog on Instagram (@naturaltouch_dogaldokun).   I always feel cool when I meet with people and talk with them on how to live our life better. To do that, food is a nice and valuable reason to gather. We need time to listen and understand each other. Food is not an instant activity. In fact, we have time to fill our stomachs and tell our stories to each other to feed our souls with new experiences. Besides, try to taste new and clean meals is a wonderful opportunity to appeal your delight of taste. Wish to discover the meaning of foods!😋

There is no need to make so much effort to prepare precious and lovely things to eat. Just ask yourself what do you want to eat? Even in all works, if you like your works, you can create beauty. Basic potato omelette, tomatoes, olives, cheese, bluberry jam and bread. Just listen to your appetite and use your imagination!

Food sharing is an often researched phenomenon - cultural, social, anthropological. Psychologists researched it as well. Apparently people prefer to buy a bread roll instead of giving money to a poorly dressed person, they also prefer donating food than other supplies (hygiene products, for example) to a welfare center. But when they were given a choice to donate apples, coupons for apples or pens to people similar to them, then no significant preference was observed. First thing coming to my mind is that people try to "protect" their "investment" - because they believe money will be spent on something else, like alcohol or cigarettes. Or perhaps they believe that poor people are always hungry. Or they think that being hungry is the worst thing that can happen. That might be a really interesting research, don't you think?

Research. Some people tend to classify some food as "guilt-free" (like broccoli) and some other as "guilty pleasure" (like, let's say, donuts) based on what feelings food elicits when eaten. Of course, noone becomes good by eating broccoli and noone becomes bad just by eating a donut. In this research 45 different reasons for feeling guilty about eating something were described: internal (like I should not eat it, I already have overweight), external (I should not eat it, it has way too many calories), situational (like vacation) and cultural (like Christmas). GUilt is one of the worst types fo after-emotions - it is very sticky and usually draws one into cycle of increasing guilt and increasing behavior ("I shouldn't - oh, I'm so bad - Oh well, whatever, I'll just eat it all"). It is significantly better to eat that cookie with a lot of pleasure that to eat the whole box while crying.
