What did you learn from these food quotes?

Over 25 years ago, Dr. Gary Chapman introduced the world to five love languages: words of affirmation, receiving gifts, acts of service, quality time, and physical touch.

Experts, along with Patrick Wanis, Ph.D., think there might be a sixth love language.

You guessed it; food!

Dr. Wanis says that “Food incorporates all the other five languages and all five senses.

It’s a very powerful way of creating a connection and expressing love.”
