Use this reflection to become more conscious this week about savoring and enjoying the food you eat. No judgment, just enjoy…
I savor my food.
I appreciate food and fully enjoy each bite. I give thanks before eating. I slow down so that I can taste my food instead of rushing through it.
I create a beautiful presentation that appeals to each of my senses. I set an elegant table with candles and cloth napkins. I delight in the scents, textures, and sounds of my food, as well as the flavors. I enjoy the smell of cinnamon in my coffee and the crunch of roasted chick peas.
I experiment with new dishes to make my diet both nutritious and delicious. I turn grocery shopping into an adventure. I visit ethnic stores and farmers’ markets. I sample unfamiliar spices and produce. I discover exotic fruits and ancient grains.
I eat before I become too hungry. Planning ahead helps me to design balanced meals and snacks instead of relying on convenience stores and vending machines.

I enjoy cooking. I keep my kitchen clean and well organized. I browse through cookbooks and the internet for ideas. Chopping vegetables makes me feel mindful and peaceful. Baking macaroons gives me a sense of accomplishment.
I share my meals with others. Serving healthy food to my family and friends expresses my love. Inviting a coworker or acquaintance out to lunch gives us a chance to talk and draw closer.
Today, I pay attention to what I put into my body. I know that healthy eating can be delicious and fun.
