My yoga teacher (this incredibly wise woman) began speaking about the food we eat and how each bite affects us internally. “If we eat a bunch of processed crap,” she said, “of course it’s not going to be good for us.”
Yes, that makes sense to me.
“Still, we can eat the best quality food in existence, but if it’s been made with the worries, the stresses, and the anxieties of the one who prepared it, those negative feelings will be part of what fuels us.”
Hold the phone. You just changed my life.
You see, the energy we put out there is exactly that: out there. It’s out there for others to take in and use as their own. And as long as we allow ourselves to put negative energy out into the world, that’s precisely the energy that will fuel the life that exists around and within ourselves. Well… the same goes with positive energy.
So the next time you prepare a meal, whether for yourself, for a loved one, or for a total stranger, do so with total and complete love. Let go of your fears, your worries, your sadness. Come into the moment and be there fully as you rinse, as you chop, as you saute, as you plate. Let this meditative food preparation be a stepping stone to the eventual meditation that can be found in every activity in which you find yourself taking part.

Made some olive crackers yesterday. Recipe by @realfoodhealthybody.
Super easy and yummy! Mine tasted slightly saltier, so I would rinse my olives next time.
Been thinking of creating a blog. A blog blog. Like the good old days, to express my thoughts. But this one has a purpose. It’s not to talk about my boring day to day life. Find out more soon. I’ll keep you posted.
