Breakfast of Consciousness Again: Tracking Mindfuls
Sunday morning: trigger time – paper on the doorstep, coffee brewing, snowed in (still, kinda), so, nowhere special to go – a recipe for a mindless eating morning.
I get a glass soup bowl and warm up some lentil soup. As I notice the second-day jelling of soup flavors and the aroma of the toasted sprouted grain bread (yesterday I totally missed out on its smell, must’ve been the flavor of the fresh-made soup that got my attention), I am seeing the fingertips of my right hand that craddles the glass soup bowl as I spoon with my non-dominant (left).
Each spoonful, more of my hand emerges, now the palm becomes seen – the hand empties, stomach fills up and the mind still stays open to what is.
I skip on Stevia as I get a second cup of coffee (this time with almond “milk”) – sweetness (whichever way you get it) tends to trump other flavors, eclipsing the eating experience.
And here I am (pausing to take a sip of coffee), punching in my “mindful tracker” card. A mindful breakfast with consciousness still online.
