Finally, posting this LONG due post👩🏽💻I completed this artwork in a couple of days, took me time to edit videos and frankly to gather my thoughts and express the relevance of this on my kitchen wall. “Reserve some days for eating with awareness” is my daily reminder every time I enter the kitchen. I read it before I eat, cook or ideate on the ingredients specially if I am cooking for myself. I DO order food from outside as most of us settled in nuclear family environments do. I still make it a point to be aware of what I am ordering and from where. It’s only in the past few months that the awareness to what I eat, how I eat and how it makes me feel has come into me. I want to continue it and now make it a point to sit, read, be thankful for the food in front of me. Most of us are hustling through our day to day lives and activities and somehow food has become one more on the list. Rushing through meetings, grabbing a snack, eating it hastily while walking through corridors, dunking down water or beverages to wash it down quickly. Or sometimes eating a couple of morsels and then letting it sit while we finish that last excel sheet, last edit, last mail making it go cold and then leaving it midway, finishing it or throwing it away. Some days we do give it some special importance, when we make it about friends and food when we are busy chit chatting, catching up on the latest gossip and mindlessly putting it in our stomach. Then there are special days like dinner dates, trying out a new restaurant or cafe with loved ones, weekends to eat out when we are a little more aware but distracted.
P.s. I am not finished yet, will share some more in my next post🗣🙏🏻😃
