Mindfulness Exercises:

  • Feel the various textures on your tongue-the soft sweetness of the mango, the firmness of the garbanzo beans, the herbal nuance of the greens.
  • Seek out the heat of the jalapeño and the briskness of the lemon zest.
  • Ponder the hardships of the fisherman who went to sea to catch the shrimp.
