Eating is one of our more sensual experiences, thus savoring it instead of devouring it offers much to our humanity. Living from this perspective creates space for lots of wonderful food experiences. There is actually no wrong or right in what we eat, it is much about how we eat. Three key words here: experience, perspective, space.
1. Experience: What do you desire? A full belly and then move on; or a full belly with contentment resulting a light, energetic feeling.
2. Perspective: How you look at food changes your relationship with it. Is it merely fuel or is it nourishment?
3. Space: Do you like a cramped, chocked full life; or do you like a liberated feeling that opens doors to more expansiveness, awareness and opportunity?
Our relationship with food has much to say about our life. Food should not be master, but our servant. As we understand its energy and vibrancy, then our choices are sweet and impactful leaving us hungering for our next sensual experience.
I just experienced sensual food at Blue Jasper in Bradenton, FL. The golden brown veggie crepe exploded with flavor. A hint of
curry offered a sweetness to the lightly sautéed spinach, onions, mushrooms, peppers, and melted cheese. The nice contrast of light crispness to the indulgent richness of the veggies was very satisfying. As I topped it with a taste of tomato chard,
the flavors expanded and resonated with my desire for a most sensual experience. This was one of the best breakfast experiences in a restaurant that I can remember. Going out for breakfast is a concession for me, I prefer to make succulent, tasty treats in my own home.
Please share with me and others your sensual food experiences.
