Mindful Eating: Appreciation

Woman holding an orangeThis morning, while eating sliced apples dipped in pecan butter, I was flooded with an image of the trees the apples and pecans came from.  I could see the trees pregnant with their fruits.  I could feel the sun in the tastes on my tongue.  I had to sit back and reflect on this vision.  It was powerful and profound at the same time.

As I continue to practice mindful eating (I’m far from mastering this meditation) new ways of being with food arise on the journey.  I am filled with appreciation for the food that I ate this morning.  I am filled with gratitude for the trees that bore their fruit for my meal.

I had no want to eat more than my stomach could process.  I sensed the Sun and the Earth filling me with more than nutrients.  I feel filled with light . . .

I am not sure if this vision will return with my next meal.  Yet, I know that I can contemplate where my food comes from the next time I sit down to eat.  This is all part of my mindful eating journey.
