༊ Yes, self and body is the embodiment of you. You, be it English, French, Bhutanese, Indian, Russian and anyone you are just coexistence of self and body. What your body need or want? Definitely the answer from all races of people will be food and clothing.
You eat food. All sort of food, except the rotten one. You eat food to nurture your body. Hope you are not eating to bulge your tummy, to shit countless, or make yourself less comfortable? You just take food for to nurture your body.
Food consists of only two things, nutrition and taste. You take food for nutrition or taste? Definitely you are more focus on taste rather than nutrients. You forget about nutrition. By the time you realize about the nutrients of the food, your body will be almost spoiled with many kinds of diseases like diabetes, obesity etc. The body that you intend to nurture inadvertently gets spoiled.
Taste is limited only around few inches of your tough. The moment it drains down through throat there is no more taste. Taste of the food is for self not for body. And that is why you are enlightened wrong that taste is for body to nurture. But nutrients acts more inside your tummy.
You might have seen cobra still showing its venomous tough and teeth, frog still looking from the bottle in laboratories. Why they are not getting rotten? They are added with preservatives, chemicals. All most every junk food is added with preservatives and you never know that you are actually consuming chemicals which will harm your body.
You never look at the quality of life rather than the quantity of consumption.
For instance, you have Nu.10 and you want to buy a packet of maggi which is not healthy and good for your body. Instead what if you buy few pieces of grapes and have which is tasty and nutritious? Whereas maggi contains preservatives and you never know what more else is added. No organic materials have that long life. It will soon get rotten.
