#26:  College Curries, Sustainabili-tea and more



Do you know that feeling when you have a lot of things going on at the same time and you don’t know where to start?

It’s out last month here at the Food Innovation Program and we’ve got some serious FOMO.

Food can be overwhelming as well. Whether it’s staying updated in your food field, shopping at the supermarket or deciding what to eat at a restaurant — it can sometimes involve a lot of energy. But a great thing about food is that it can do just the opposite.

By taking a few minutes to pause, thinking about the food in front of you, engaging your senses to enjoy that memorable smell or delicious flavour. Enjoying every moment that food has brought people together or satisfied a personal craving.

Food can be meditation in itself — take a listen

Stay energised,

Elizabeth and Anusha
