The Essence of Mindfulness

“Mindful eating is very pleasant” – Thich Nhat Hanh

The following excellent article first caught my eye due to its title – “Of Onions and Olive Oil”? After reading it, I fully appreciate what mindfulness is all about.  How apart the thoughts  presented are from our typical American way of eating –  standing, sitting in the car, in front of the TV, or consuming a whole bag of potato chips in one sitting.

Maybe we should take this time of quarantines, lockdowns, politics and distancing to practice the art of mindfulness even in isolation or with family.  It supports the crazy notion that it is not what we eat, but how we eat. SF
