“Pay attention to each spoonful of food.
As you bring it up to your mouth,
use your mindfulness
to be aware that this food
is the gift of the whole universe.
The Earth and the sky
have collaborated to bring this spoonful of food to you.
While breathing in and out,
you only need a second or two to recognize this.
We eat in such a way
that every morsel of food,
every moment of eating
has mindfulness in it.
It takes only a few seconds
to see that the food we’re holding
in our spoon
is the gift of the whole cosmos.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, from How to Eat
