This actually comes from my father (I think they may be one of the first if not the first things that he has written for the blog) with a little inspiration from Miguel Ruiz:
Food is love and when we enjoy our food, when we really taste it it and feel the texture, it is one of the most sensual experiences we can have. There is so much love in the action of eating, and if we use a new mantra every time we eat, we increase the pleasure. The mantra is just one sound: mmmm. If we practice loving our food every time we eat, soon it becomes a habit. It becomes a ritual that we use to give our thanks to express our love and to receive love without resistance.
