The Best Way To Practice Mindfulness In The Kitchen

 

A clever way to approach any culinary experience is by exercising mindfulness in the kitchen.

 

"In preparing food, it is essential to be sincere and to respect each ingredient regardless of how coarse or fine it is…. In handling and preparing wild herbs, do so as you would the ingredients for a rich feast, wholeheartedly, sincerely, clearly…. In nourishing the seeds of living in the Way, rich food and wild grass are not separate".

               Eihei Dogen in Tenzo Kkyokun (Instructions for the Buddhist Cook)

Belinda is a writer, editor, explorer, cook and gardener. She loves to travel and goes wherever frequent flyer miles will take her. When she is not roving round the planet, diving in the sea, or skiing down a mountain she might be found working in her impractically large vegetable garden or sitting amidst a stack of cookbooks concocting ideas for some crazy new thing to cook in the kitchen. She has practiced yoga for twenty years and two years ago started a meditation practice, which is still very much a work in progress. She lives in Northern California.
