A mindfulness practice we can use ourselves and offer our students is mindful eating. It is a practice that can honor the Earth and those persons whose work has made our food possible, deepen our eating experience, and cultivate our ability to pay attention to the present moment. It also has tremendous health benefits beyond meeting our nutritional needs.

The Center for Mindful Eating offers the following as an introduction to mindful eating:

Our relationship to food is a central one that reflects our attitudes toward our environment and ourselves. As a practice, mindful eating can bring us awareness of our own actions, thoughts, feelings and motivations, and insight into the roots of health and contentment.
