What we eat, we become. Mindfulness of our eating habits not only improves personal nutrition but also deepens our understanding of where food comes from, and how these sources impact greater sustainability.
We’d like to share this beautiful short animation by the “Cultivate a Better World” campaign (run by Chipotle restaurant) all about the origins of our food. This 3-minute viral video is haunting and lovely and will encourage you to view organic foods in a new light:
We love this campaign because it touches upon three recurring themes here at Mind Fuel Daily:
- Compassion: In addition to nutritional factors, the
element of compassion plays a huge role in many people’s decisions to become
vegan or vegetarian.
- Consciousness: The opinions of others may impact our
lives but we can always use mindfulness and self-reflection to determine our
own personal moral values.
- Personal Power: Even if we can’t change the world right away, we must realize that it is within our power to develop positive momentum through individual action.
