Mindful Eating, Mindful Life

Hope you're all eating mindfully!

I was pleased to know I am doing everything Ms Cheung advises, but I know my portions are too large. I will definitely try using a 9" plate, ooh that sounds very small :-O

Thanks for posting, I love your videos!

Kath - We're the same... I thought a 9" plate was for the side dish! Saying that though, we do tend to eat more veggies than anything else, I'm sure you're the same!

I'll have to see if our library has this book. I'd love to read it! I read Peace Is Every Step when I was a teenager and just loved it.

I do most of these steps, like not skipping meals, eating plant based and using smaller plates (as well as bowls), but there are a few I have to work on. Great video!

Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …
