Happy Uposatha – Meals

I’ve been struggling with bringing heedfulness to the table (literally) but feel like I may have come up with something. Instead of grazing like a mindless ruminant until I can eat no more, I will decide what to eat, make it and take no more food after that. It seems like food had taken the place of so many other sense pleasures but I really need to get ahold of it if I want to make any progress along the path. What better day to commit to it than on an uposatha day.
