Pomegranate Seeds

January 13th, 2007 — 12:16pm

I was peeling a pomegranate before, pulling back its many chambers, and popping the seeds into salad I was making.

I thought how easy it was to just throw parts of the pomegranate out, not taking the time to pull back its inner pellet textured skin, and throw the rest of the seeds out. Not because they weren’t any good. But because I was in a hurry.

That got me thinking about waste, and how much I can waste food. How lucky I am to have that luxury. And the relationship between waste and overconsumption. If I don’t value something, then I’ll never be satisfied.

I’m an overconsumer — of food, of clothes (I come from a long line of overconsumers in that area), to name a few areas, and I think it’s a good thing for the body and the spirit to take a break from all that consumption.

I’ll report back some time and let you know how that’s going.
