All to often in today's busy world, we tend to eat on the run and slap together meals in the shortest possible time. When prepared with care and attention, food can provide emotional as well as physical sustenance to those who eat it. Before you begin cooking, ritually wash and bless your hands, and clear your mind with three deep breaths. As you prepare the meal, keep in mind the image of those you are feeding, and visualize love passing outward from your heart, along your arms and into the food. Serve it with due ceremony.
