You are what you eat

I was raised to eat a little of everything. Does that mean I'm a cow? A lamb? A head of cabbage? No, I'm a human who needs fuel to function. I'm not sure if I'd look better as a carrot or a fish? A pig or stalk of wheat? To me, you are the spirit you try to achieve. I'm not what I eat, I'm the person who reads to my blind friend, who supports the arts in my community, and mostly the person who everyone turns out to visit with every Friday afternoon, every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I try to fuel my body with the best I can. But I am not what I eat. I'm me.

As the sentence above is my signiture, let me say one thing, the fraze comes from the Bible and is to be understood spiritualy rather than phisicaly.

Your sig is the only sentence I've seen you post that wasn't loaded with spelling errors.

Oh, well in that case, Charlie, at the moment, I'm a spiritual salad! Just kidding.

I always took the meaning to be the one in the top line of this article, but I found the rest of the article interesting, too. You are what you eat

It doesn't really mean what you consume...it means what you take into your heart, head and hands.

I prefer Popeye's philosophy, "I am what I am.". (take it or leave it.)

If you are what you eat, am I cheap, fast, and easy?
