So they knew she was a real princess. The young people got married and lived happily ever after.
The next morning the queen asked the girl how she’d slept.
So the queen thought of a plan. The next girl who came was asked to stay the night.
The problem was that all the girls who came to the place said they were princesses.
One dried pea was placed on the bed in the guest room and forty mattresses were placed on it.

Have you ever noticed how much of our life is centered on food? Look at all the meetings held and decisions made over a meal: power breakfasts,
For centuries, food has been a key element in religious rituals. Food was used as offerings to the gods and their high priests and priestesses. Food has been considered a form of tithing to a church or religious
5 power lunches, dinners, banquets, receptions. Consider all the celeb-
Rations where food is all-important: weddings, birthdays, religious feast days, national holidays, etc. Food is the great icebreaker when people meet for pleasure or business. Food is at the center of many of our important activities.
Often the differences among cultures in the foods they eat are related to the differences in geography and local resources. People living near water (the sea, lakes, and rivers) tend to eat more fish and seafood. People living in colder climates tend to eat heavier, fatty foods. However, with the development of a global economy, food boundaries and differences are beginning to dissipate.
Throughout history, food has been used as a symbol of wealth or gratitude, or to demonstrate position and power. In some cultures, eating lavish and exotic meals is a sign of wealth and power, whereas eating only the basic foods is a sign of belonging to a more common class. In some cultures, the offer of a glass of cool water is the greatest honor or compliment one can receive.
Sect. Certain foods such as lamb, bread, and bitter herbs are religious symbols in some ceremonies.
The sharing of food demonstrates acceptance, friendship, family, and love. To be invited to ‘break bread’ with a family, in many cultures, shows respect and is a sign of friendship and acceptance.
Regardless of how you view food, you need it to live. You need the right kinds of food in the right amounts to have a healthy life. Your needs for different kinds of foods change as you grow and mature. Everyone needs the three key nutrients that provide the body with energy and the necessary building blocks: carbohydrates, fat, and protein.
Not everyone knows the right types and kinds of foods the body needs to grow, develop, and stay healthy. A good, daily, balanced diet is the key to a healthy life. Eating the right food every day not only nourishes our bodies, but it also nourishes our spirits, our creativity and thinking.
