I had a little bit of trouble with this challenge. I was on a field trip with my clients. It was difficult to have any quiet & privacy at all, as it is thrilling for clients to watch their teacher eat lunch. Paparazzi, anyone? I was able to check in in the middle of my meal, & I determined that I was satisfied, and did not need to eat all of my lunch.
I did enjoy the texture that the trail mix brought to my yogurt. It was pure delight. I remember thinking, this is the best meal I’ve ever had! So much so, I didn’t need the tuna, nor the cheese/crackers combo.
Later on, I tried this exercise with berries. Unfortunately, I wasn’t hungry enough to make it a whole meal. But, I did bring some mindfulness to it. I noticed that the first bite of the raspberry was tart. The second bite was sweet. Really cool!
