a blessing before meal...

... my son wanted to know why we said a blessing before each meal; does it make the food more holy or make everything we are about to eat be good for us? Oh, if only it worked that way...

"Dear Lord, please bless away all the calories and fat from this fudge sundae. Amen"

I prayed over meals in the commons in college. Part of it was thanks for food, the other was a prayer that it didn't mess me up too badly inside.
