Food Is on the Table!

Food is on the Table! 

At each meal, pause to consider the long chain of inter-related events that brought the food to your table. Sun rain, soil, and all the hands that tended the plants or raised and fed the animal or caught and the fish. Recognize if the animal was likely to have received humane treatment. Consider the love and labor of those who prepared the meal. Let your breath slow down to settle your nervous system into rest and digest mode.  Allow your senses to take in the colors, textures and aroma before the first bite.  Digestion actually begins in this way, so take the time to enjoy it as it happens.
