In Reinventing the Meal, renowned psychologist Pavel Somov presents readers with a plan for mindfully reconnecting with the comforting rituals involved in preparing and enjoying food. This revolutionary way of eating offers readers daily opportunities for feeling more relaxed and connected with their bodies without extensive meditation practice. Chapter by chapter, this guide helps readers reinvent their relationship to food and eventually see each meditative mealtime as an opportunity to reconnect with the body, the mind, and the world at large.

A research study found that mindful eaters-that is, those who eat with awareness of why they are eating so that they can stop when they become full-weighed less than the control group (Journal of the American Dietetic Association, 2009). ? Pavel Somov is a renowned psychologist who blogs regularly on Huffington Post, Red Room, Psych Central, Intent, and other websites. He is author of Eating the Moment (ISBN: 978 1 57224 543 3). ? This book offers intriguing new exercises, rituals, and meditations rooted in Buddhist traditions that can help readers get the most out of their meals. Readers learn to eat nine desserts a day (by anticipating and savoring every meal like dessert), practice ancient Oryoki eating traditions, and engage in Ahimsa ";no harm"; eating by choosing food that is grown in ways that are respectful of people, animals, and the environment. Description: Everyone wants to feel more relaxed and connected with their bodies, but how? And more importantly, when? Many people's busy schedules leave little time for lengthy meditation practices and when life is most stressful and meditation most needed, many of us dispense with quiet time first. Reinventing the Meal offers a new way to get mindful moments in-by centering these important and beneficial practices around mealtimes. At least three times a day, readers can practice the art of becoming present, mindful, and relaxed. This ";three course"; approach introduces strategies for practicing relaxation and breathing, moving forward into meditation techniques, and, finally, learning to eat mindfully. The book offers intriguing exercises, rituals, and meditations rooted in ancient and modern traditions that make mindful eating appealing and possible for anyone. The book also brings global awareness to eating practices and encourages readers to consider the source of their food. Author Bio: Pavel G.
