365 Daily Meditations for Finding Balance and Bliss through Mindful Eating
Meal by Meal is a unique daily meditation book that taps into the healing power of mindfulness as a tool for dealing with issues such as food choice, dieting, and weight loss in a more balanced and sensible manner. Each day is a self-contained journey of conscious eating to nurture a healthier relationship with food.
As sustenance, Buddhist devotee and former monk Donald Altman shares daily meditations including quotes from various sources from around the world: Zen teaching stories, the 6th century Rule of St. Benedict, the Bible, the Buddhist tripitakascriptures, Hindu scriptures, Native American rituals, and sages from all the major wisdom traditions. Meal by Meal also explores food rituals, eating, preparation, and much more, as it examines perennial food dilemmas, including how we can learn to moderate our thoughts and feelings about food and how we can master mindful techniques to help us transcend our struggles so that we can rest in peace with all of our food choices.
Meal by Meal offers inspiration and hope for those engaged in the difficult, daily struggle for balance around food, as well as daily practices for those wanting to nurture a healthy relationship with food, body and eating.
