Cook Dinner for a Mindful Monday

Monday is the day that we can dread, or, a day that can energize us and start the week off right. One thing that could really set things off on the right foot is taking the time to slow down and make dinner. The process of finding a recipe online, from your mother, or reusing an oldie but goodie, purchasing the ingredients, methodically chopping, sautéing, stirring, roasting then plating can be therapeutic in its details. By really giving into the process and staying present during each step, you may find the food tasting better than grabbing takeout on your way home from work. It can take a little bit longer, but there’s something about sitting down to a meal you prepared for yourself. For some reason it tastes better!

  1. This is so true. I always include making dinner on my daily list – trying to avoid take out meals. It takes thought, time and preparation, but I am in the process of creating healthy meals made in one skillet. The whole process of slowing down to cook and enjoy a meal after a long day is so rewarding. Thanks for the reminder.

      Absolutely! Even chopping the vegetables can be a mindful experience! One skillet healthy meals sound enticing, hope you’re able to start sharing them with all of us.
