1. Food Never Judges

People may bring you down. But does pizza ever say, "Sorry, you are too fat." No. It loves you back no matter what. Does your tub of ice cream ever tell you "Go away, you are an ugly excuse for an adult." No. It pleads with you to be together.

2. It Is Always There For You

When you're happy, it's there. When you're down in the dumps...still there. It offers a gentle comfort and will never push you away.

3. It Warms Your Heart...And Belly!

After a hard, rough day at work or school there is no better way to unfreeze your cold heart than with some beloved food. It will brighten your day and perk you back up again.

4. Food Keeps Us From Getting Hangry

It drives away the evil side of us that turns us into savage monsters - our hungry side.

5. It Comforts Us Every Day Without So Much As A Thank You

Most of us have meals 3 times a day. And then there's the countless cookies, cake and other crap we feed on in between.

6. The Nostalgia...

What would our childhood be without Fruit Roll-ups, Twinkies, Bugles, Jell-O cups, Fruit Gushers and Kool-Aid Jammers? What a void that would be.

7. Food Comes In All Shapes and Sizes

We all know not to criticize Aunt Carol's chili. That's recipe has been in the family since great-great-great grandma fought off a bear from the first batch.

9. Food Defines Us

Some of us are avocado or spinach people. Others are more the double-chocolate brownie fudge ice cream cake kind of people. It's what makes us special.

10. Meals Brings Us Together

How can we not be thankful for those nights around the table piling up our plates with turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie? Or those cold nights with friends sipping a steaming mug of coffee and munching on some hot apple pie.
