Maxwell and I just returned from our third ten-day Vipassana meditation course up in a chilly corner of Massachusetts. We returned to NYC this weekend, greeted by bright light, loud noises and for me, January's traditional Eating Light theme on The Kitchn. I'd already been thinking about the notion of eating light, given the two-meal-a-day arrangement up there... I thought I should chime in on what I noticed about eating with more awareness and less noise. Eating quietly vs. eating lightly.
