From The Green House Project Blog:
Food is pleasure. Preparing it, smelling it and eating it, regardless of our dining rituals, food brings meaning to our lives and defines a part of our individuality. The Green House Model protects this philosophy through teaching the importance of simple pleasures and knowing relationships for creating meaning and value for elders.
Our sense of smell is arguably our strongest sense and is intimately linked to the parts of our brain that process emotions and learning. Memories of smell are processed differently than memories of sights or sounds in that smell memories do not diminish or change over time. That’s why certain smells — particularly food — can trigger intense feelings of homesickness, flashbacks and other sensations.
What better way to celebrate our sense of smell and pleasure in food than to share your favorite recipe? Please visit The Green House Project Blog here and share recipes of foods that will always be part of your life.
