Mindfulness is a key attribute to conscious living. One exercise that helps intensify awareness is concentration – like in this food meditation.
The idea is to slow down in order to enjoy and appreciate the food that you eat and the effort that went into creating it. Consider doing a food meditation with, say, honey roasted almonds, or whatever is your favorite. Pick up a nut and really take it in—its feel, the way it smells. Now, think about the journey your morsel took from growing and harvesting and shelling and toasting to get to you at home. Let it touch your lips as you put it in your mouth and then chew it purposefully, taking in its texture and flavor. Isn’t that the best bite you ever ate? Absolute heaven!
Truly, this is food for thought… and thought for food, I guess.
