Interesting meditation, I think I'll try it.
If we ate that mindfully and slow we would certainly lose weight!

Sounds like the one Jon Kabat-Zinn teaches. I have read several of his works. :)

I will do it with my dinner. Thanks!

Mindful Eating Meditation

• Find something that is small and tasty, like a grape, and hold it in the palm of your hand.
• Think about where the grape came from and the kindness and hard work of the people who grew it.
• Take a few seconds to notice your preconceived ideas of what it may taste like. Take a deep breath and let go of those thoughts. Observe it as though you’ve never seen a grape before. Allow your senses to become alive and alert. Notice the shape. The size. The scent. The texture of the grape. Notice the color and feel the coolness of it on your skin. Take your time and notice everything you possibly can.
• Now, consciously and slowly, bring it to your mouth. Observe the feelings of the muscles in your arm. Lightly touch the grape against your lips. How is your body reacting in anticipation?
• Now bite the grape and feel the burst of flavor in your mouth and on your tongue and teeth. As you chew, feel the texture and notice the movements of your mouth as the grape moves towards your throat and you swallow.
• Feel the grape as it goes down your throat and settles in your stomach. Become aware of the absence of the grape, of the aftertaste and the aroma.
• Imagine the grape breaking down, being absorbed by your body and becoming part of it.

The whole process should take five minutes or longer.
