Approach every meal as if it were it were your very first one. Honour the sources of your food and all the ways in which your body works to support you. If possible, find a calm spot to enjoy your meal away from distractions. Turn off your cell phone, resist the temptation to read or multi-task while eating. Simply focus on enjoying the meal.
Take time to appreciate the efforts of all those who farmed, transported and prepared the food. Take time to appreciate the earth’s soil and nourishing qualities of the sun and rain. And then appreciate yourself for this meal and your body for all the wonder-filled ways in which it works!
