Mindfulness through Cooking

Cooking is a great mode for practicing Mindfulness as it is the only activity which makes use of all our 5 senses

‘Be present in the moment’ and captivate the sensory information of the food you are cooking.

Sight:

See the vibrant array of colourful vegetables, spices and herbs which we will be adding to our curry

The smells:

Unfold the layering of your curry with each ingredient and spices which when added emulates a change of ‘fragrance ‘

Sounds:

Chopping of onions, ginger, garlic… The crackling of spices in oil, the sizzling of curry paste, the addition of water/coconut milk to make the sauce.

Touch:

The feel and texture of all the ingredients used.

Taste:

Last but not least, tasting and relishing the wonderful curry you have created.

And definitely ‘cooking with love’ is the most important ingredient for a really delicious curry
