Common Eating – 9 – Food and Drink

Common Eating – Fasting and Feasting

The reason I decided to switch this class with the class on Ferial Eating, was that it seemed more logical to examine the idea of fasting and feasting coming out of how we eat on a daily basis instead of vice-versa.  Although both of these topics will arise during the examination of common eating in …

Common Eating – Introduction and Overview.

So, as I’ve been working my way through these posts again, and come to this introduction and overview,  I noticed that when I did the course outline the initial class is entitled “You Are What and How You Eat.
