We all eat food, everyday. It’s one of the most intimate actions we can perform: we take substances into our bodies for the purpose of keeping us alive. But in today’s busy world it’s easy to eat without taking the time to think both about what the body really wants and where our food comes from.
Intuitive eating experts suggest that in order to really connect with your food and your body, you should practice the following steps when eating:
Just like how you care about where your clothing comes from, the food we put into our bodies for nourishment is part of a larger mindful life. As we load up our grills for the summer, let’s take a moment to make sure that we are leaving the best impact on the world around us. Groups like Local Harvest can help connect you to local farmers’ markets and CSAs.
Happy mindful eating!

When it comes to beauty products, the concept of “ethical” products gets complicated. While issues like animal testing might come to mind right away, there are many other variables to consider when trying to find an ethically made beauty brand. Sustainable Jungle divides these variables into two categories: ingredients and business practices. Products that are made ethically will contain ingredients that are cruelty-free, organic and natural, vegan, and palm oil free. Sustainable and ethical business practices, on the other hand, include ethical sourcing, thoughtful packaging, robust waste and resource management, and charitable giving.
This can be a lot to consider, so this week Mindful Supply wants to highlight some product lines that are ethical.
