You don’t have to be vegan to eat mindfully. And as it happens you don’t have to leave your house to get fresh ingredients for healthy, yummy food straight to your door.
In the interest of self isolation, I thought I’d try out Mindful Chef as it meant I didn’t have to face the painfully long waits at the supermarket over the last few weeks.
One thing I have truly appreciated and exercised during this extended time at home is intentional cooking.
I have to say that having extra mind space freed up by these recipe boxes and not having to worry if I have the right ingredients, or if I’ve measured them out correctly, has allowed me to be very present in my cooking.
I can really spread love and good intention of nourishment and satisfaction over my food as I make my meals.
Ayurveda means “knowledge of life”, it is the ancient Indian art and science of keeping the body and mind balanced and healthy.
Ayurvedic holistic diet practices teach that the emotion and energy in which you cook transmutes into the food that you eat.
It is such a beautiful concept, that cooking with love can fill you and loved ones with goodness and light as you eat.
I’m looking forward to learning more about Ayurvedic practices, there are so many layers I had no idea about, including seasonal eating based on the three elements of Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
As I learn and delve into this more I will share what I have discovered as I go along.
What made my Mindful Chef experience even better is that the brand differs from similar offerings by making healthy eating easy, using local, nutritionist approved ingredients.
This means you don’t have to think twice about the nutritional balance in your diet. As a veggie/vegan for me that is a big win. Getting my boxes weekly has allowed me to make nutritious, easy to make delicious meals.
I’m not surprised it is the UK’s highest rated recipe box.
You can get £10 off your first Mindful Chef box here or use the code GOO10X2 for the discount off your first two boxes to try for yourself. Enjoy.
