Love Part 19: Love Your Body

"I sing the body electric," says Whitman. My blogs haven't been singing about the body much at all; it's all love in abstract, love of humankind, of mind, of God, forgiveness, as a moral command, or societal glue, or metaphysical entity holding the world together. Aquinas mentions that you should love your own body, but many of these dudes didn't really like their bodies (can you even picture them healthy?).

But there's much to be said for loving your own body, your brain, your biology, your health. If you don't love that, then do you love yourself? Why don't we love ourselves? All these questions are relevant and connected. Nutrition is, among others, the science of loving your body. Read this book as a start, which gives you the 14 best foods for your body:

Beans
Blueberries
Broccoli
Oats
Oranges
Pumpkin
Salmon
Soy
Spinach
Tea
Tomatoes
Turkey
Walnuts
Yogurt
