Be devoted to feeding yourself. Eating can be a form of art and play, devotion and commitment to yourself. It can nourish you on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels all at once. Try to get in touch with the nourishing role that food can play in your life by cooking for yourself, letting others cook for you, or sharing a meal with loved ones. Make it special by paying attention to how the food looks. Don't just eat it out of the cardboard take-out box or the sauce pan you cooked it in. Consciously direct your love into the preparation and presentation of your food, knowing that this love-food will also nourish your body. Love your body by loving your food. Here's a time when it is okay to play with your food!
