Soul food depends on what you put in it. I don't mean spices either.
If you have a serious, loving, creative energetic attitude towards life, when you cook, you cook with the same attitude. Food changes into blood, blood into cells, cells change into energy which changes up into life and since your lifestyle is imaginative, creative, loving, energetic, serious, food is life. You dig.
