Eating is [fill in the blank]

Some quotes that agree with me, found on Edible San Francisco titled, "Eating is..."

Eating is...a political act; every time you eat, you vote with your fork.
—Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, New York University.

“Eating agricultural act”
The philosopher- farmer Wendell Berry wrote that aphorism, often invoked these days, in his 1990 essay collection What Are People For?

Eating is...nice work if you can get it.
—Tom Philpott, Grist food editor and Maverick Farms cofounder.

Eating is...a way to connect with the earth, appreciate creation, and a tool for building community.

How would you fill in the blank?
