Focus on Your Food

In our society, we constantly seem to be running out of time. We all catch ourselves wishing for more hours in the day to do the things we actually WANT to do. That being said, we tend to miss out on key aspects of life. These may be relationships, leisure time, and… spending quality time with our food!

For some cultures, eating meals is the most important and spiritual time of the day. Truth be told, food allows us to live our incredible lives. It can give us wonderful nutrients, vitamins, flavor and health (if we’re eating it the right way). Our culture takes the food we put on our plate for granted. Next time you’re eating a meal, try and visualize where your food came from.. Maybe it’s from a farmer who works all day long to supply food for thousands of people and doesn’t get to spend much time with his own family. Maybe your chicken had a wonderful life running around on the free range. It’s a deep thought that may have never crossed your mind before. Then take time to ease your thoughts and just breathe!  Not many times in the day where we get to enjoy little moments like these ones, so why not take advantage of them?!   Try and solely focus on your food. I bet you’ll appreciate eating more than ever before!  I know this may sound crazy to some, but I have done it before and it’s definitely worth the experience.
