Here’s a Sample of the “Mindful Of Your Food And Eating” Guided Meditation Script:

Eating Mindfully

Eating is an opportunity to nourish your body while nourishing your mindfulness practice.

You can do this practice in any position, but it is helpful to stay still while eating.

This minimizes unnecessary stimulus and helps you focus on the experience.

You can do this with any food. I recommend starting with something simple, like raisins, berries, or a few of your favorite vegetables.

Begin by taking in the food visually. Notice the colors, shapes, and sizes.

As you look at the food, notice the urge to start eating.

There is nothing wrong with hunger, but allow the cravings to come and go.

Return to the sight of the food.

Next, investigate the smell of the food.

Some foods may have stronger aromas than others, and you may have to hold the food up to your nose

Be present for the experience of smelling.

When the mind begins craving, just return to the smell in front of you.

Before eating, take a brief moment to appreciate the energy that went into its production.

People worked to grow this food and bring it to you.

Nature provided nutrients, rainwater, and sunshine.

Maybe somebody cooked, cleaned, or packaged it for you.

Bring into your mind all of the energy from various sources that came together to create this meal.

Now, slowly pick up the food.
