Keeping kosher means raising my consciousness about what I am eating, something that is an everyday occurrence, to a spiritual level. By keeping kosher I know that I am fulfilling one of G-d’s commandments even when I eat. I am not just satisfying my hunger desires but rather am raising the act up by keeping Hashem in mind.
Keeping kosher also raises my level of discipline. My family has chosen to wait six hours after consuming meat in order to eat something dairy. The waiting also causes one to always be conscious that there is a G-d who created this world and gave the Jews certain rules to live by as His holy people.
