Mindful Eating

“What we buy and eat can contribute to climate change, or it can help stop it. Eating is a chance to nourish our own body with the wonders of the cosmos, knowing that we are not destroying the earth by doing so.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Thay recommended that “lay communities should be courageous and give rise to the commitment to be vegetarian, at least 15 days each month. If we can do that, we will feel a sense of well-being. We will have peace, joy, and happiness right from the moment we make this vow and commitment.”

To help support the community in this commitment, all recipes in The Mindfulness Bell are plant-based and do not contain any animal products including meat, fish, shellfish, dairy, eggs, or honey. In accordance with the mindfulness trainings, they also do not include alcohol.

For more information on the ethics and practice of mindful eating, we recommend the following by Thich Nhat Hanh:
