The first word that come to mind for me when I think of food is: Therapeutic.
I cook to relax (I know, weird right?), I cook to celebrate, I cook to reduce stress, I cook when I'm happy, I cook when I'm bored and I eat for the same reasons...which means I have to work out all the time otherwise I'd be morbidly obese.
