Eating touches many old, old parts of our selves, so it's no surprise that stories abound in our diets. Still, I enjoyed this article.

Greg, thanks for posting this article!  It touches on aspects of the way we approach food that are rarely discussed.  Just skimming headlines is a good indicator of how we create simplistic and dramatic stories about food!  On the other hand, it's a complex topic.  Gluten, for example, appears to make me very sick, but what if investigations eventually show that it's more complicate than that?



Appamada is not just the occasional mindful thought or attentive state of mind, it’s actually a commitment to being attentive. It’s more than just a meditative state of mind, it’s more than just being mindful. It has to do with that primary ethical or moral orientation we have in life, with which we bring into being whatever activity we’re engaged in. Whether in formal meditation, in our interactions with other people, in our social concerns, or in our political choices, it’s the energetic cherishing of what we regard as good.
