When I posted my first video from Australia last week, I intended to keep a video diary about what it’s like being a vegan abroad. However, I hadn’t banked on going into ‘second phase’ – the rest, repair and replenish stage – within a few days of being away, on holiday, meaning I’ve spent much of the last week getting over a bout of flu.
So, for this video I’ve decided to reflect on my relationship with food and observe how it has been changing during our travels and especially how it differed while I was recovering from the flu. Apologies for the background noise of the sea in some of the video!
Managing our relationship with food is complicated, especially emotionally, so I invite you to become curious and observe your thoughts and emotions and how they may be related to what you choose to eat. I also invite you to eat slowly, consciously and mindfully. Be aware and present as you eat. What’s going on in your mind, body and emotional state?
What would you do if faced with a dish that you shouldn’t eat because of the moral or ethical choices you’ve made (like I was)? I look forward to hearing from you.
