  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Eat Mindfully
    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How do your eating experiences differ when practicing mindfulness?

    Lexi Bird 12/06/2018 5:12 AM
    Eating mindfully helps me to be aware of the experience of eating (e.g., taste, touch, texture), rather than simply eating to not be hungry anymore.

    Waste Compost Food Waste
    New to composting? Be sure to check out the action resource links to learn tips and more about it. As you transition from throwing food away to composting, what do you notice about how much you are tossing? Do you know how your compost will be used and the benefits it has on the environment?

    For my action, I researched worm composting, as this would be manageable in my small apartment (if my roommates don't oppose). Food waste is a huge challenge in our society, however, I try to limit my contribution of food waste by buying only what I can and will eat.
