We should appreciate our food more
We should start thinking about what was necessary for food to land on our plates in order to actually feel grateful and be aware of the whole process of how it came to be.
Say, I want to stuff my face with cake. What's in it? What was necessary for all those ingredients to be what they were before the cake was made?
If I think through the whole process from seed to flour to part of the cake, and do the same thing with all the other ingredients, I come to be a lot more aware of what I'm eating and the labour that went into it, thus actually appreciating and savouring the cake when eating it instead of munching it away while surfing the internet.
I think doing that exercise from time to time can encourage a healthy relation to food and eating, create more happiness and inner calm
