Through the food that we choose to eat, we directly and indirectly make an impact on our bodies and our minds, and on the environment(s) around us. This is a newer concept since our ancestors didn’t have much of a choice when it came to food. Now we have the ability to choose what to eat and what NOT to eat.
Mindful eating is mindful voting.
We vote for what we believe in through our choice of food. We vote for the food that comes from places that don’t harm our body, our mind, and our planet.
At the beginning of your next meal, set the timer for 5 minutes for a mindful eating practice. Treat that 5 minutes as a meditation! Enjoy every taste of the food in mindfulness.
