Mindful Eating

As promised, I’m sharing a link to an article about mindful eating. How is this relevant to avoiding preservatives? Well, focusing on our food will reduce the chance that we’re mindlessly eating less desirable, preservative-filled foods (like I do from time to time and my puppy, Juno attempts to do every chance he gets).

The beautiful thing about mindful eating too, is that you are intentionally considering the cycle of nourishment and life – the creation of a piece of fruit sitting in front of you, for instance. Think about it as a seed, the way in which it was nurtured with time, water, sun and soil…

Enjoy the mindful eating exercise included in the article:
