The more we know about the food we consume, the healthier the decisions we make. With this knowledge, appreciating our food becomes a part of the joy of eating. Knowing where our food comes from helps us choose healthier options and more deeply appreciate the connection between food and culture.
Knowledge lets us appreciate the little things, like the food on our plates, new corners of the natural world, or the history of a technology we use every day. The more knowledge we have, the more we walk through the world with a little more appreciation.
