Publisher Summary

Mary DeTurris Poust draws on the rich appreciation of meals she first gained at the tables of her childhood in an Italian-American family, leading readers into reflection on the connections between eating, self-image, and spirituality. Like Geneen Roth in Women, Food and God, but from a uniquely Catholic point of view, Poust helps readers spot ways they use food as a way of avoiding or ignoring their real desires - for acceptance, understanding, friendship, love, and indeed for God.

With spiritual insights and practices gathered while she sorted out her own sometimes-conflicting attitudes and uses of food, Poust blends humor and encouragement, pushing beyond a love-hate relationship with food to a conscious appreciation of its spiritual meaning. She draws from scripture and the great Catholic prayer forms and devotions to assist readers in making intentional changes in their use of food. Poust also offers reflections on fasting, eating in solidarity with the poor, vegetarianism, and the local food movement.
