Food for the Soul

by David Evans

No matter where we are on November 24— whether around a dinner table with family and friends or in the basement of one of the thousands of churches that open once a year to feed the needy—food will be a focal point of our day. Some nutritionists now even recommend planning a cheat day into an otherwise healthy diet plan. But holidays can also amplify the feelings that drive many late-night refrigerator raids—loneliness, depression and anxiety. Instead of nourishing our souls and hearts in the face of emotional pain, we sometimes feed our bodies to the point of sickness. As heart disease and diabetes—both of which demand healthy eating habits—now top the list of HIVer health concerns, it will be more important than ever to ensure that a one-day binge of comfort food doesn’t turn into a daily habit. So this Thanksgiving, tend to your relationships, give voice to your feelings and find reasons for gratitude. Feed your soul—your body will thank you.
