Reflections on excessiveness... Excessive eating results in excessive body mass, which leads to excessive exercise, excessive funds needed to pay for excessive food, excessive forests needed to be cut down for excessive plantings… I wish to eat simply. I wish minimize eating food that has required excessive processing, excessive packaging, excessive transportation and excessive cost. I wish to live gently. I’m finding a new mindset. I will see my excessiveness as an illness of my mind, and thus an illness in my body. I wish to eat simply to fuel my body. I will be kind to myself and thus to our world.
