Mindfulness Monday – Eating

fruits and veggies

“Food reveals our connection with the earth.
Each bite contains the life of the sun and the earth…..
We can see and taste the whole universe in a piece of bread!
Contemplating our food for a few seconds before eating,
and eating in mindfulness,
can bring us to much happiness.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

 

“Mindful eating is about awareness.
When you eat mindfully,
you slow down,
pay attention to the food you’re eating,
and savor every bite.”

~ Susan Albers

 

“Mindful eating is a way
to become reacquainted
with the guidance of
our internal nutritionist.”

~ Jan Chozen Bays

Mindfulness Monday 16 – Eating

Food reveals our connection with earth.
Each bite contains the life of the sun and the earth…
We can see and taste the whole universe in a piece of bread!
Contemplating our food for a few seconds before eating,
and eating in mindfulness,
can bring us much happiness.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Taken slowly, or mindfully,
even eating an orange or a bowl of soup,
or a small piece of dark chocolate for that matter,
can take on the flavor of prayer.
