It's really important to enjoy the food while you're eating. Slow down and chew completely: 20 chews per bite is good! Taste the food, think about what you’re eating, and enjoy the texture and aroma, and sense the quality and nourishment you’re receiving. In addition to the flavor, be conscious of how nutritional the food is – and which vitamins and minerals it is giving you. How does it help and nourish your body and mind? Think about where the food came from: was it grown nearby, or in a distant land? How was it cultivated? Is it fresh or preserved?
