What is the purpose of eating? To sustain our bodies so that we can work, play and interact with our fellow man with energy and intelligence.
Making a blessing over food before it is eaten interweaves the above daily activities with a spiritual awareness that the true source of our sustenance comes from G-d.
The Sages thus ordained that one should not derive benefit from our food without first reciting a blessing. We make different blessings for different food types before eating, and after-blessings when the repast is complete.
