Have you heard of mindfulness?
It is something I am trying hard to practice these days. Mindfulness is bringing your full attention to the present moment. For example: mindfulness is sitting around the dinner table discussing each other’s days and savoring your food, it’s not peeking at your phone in-between careless bites. That is hard for me! Most of the time I try to two-time meals by working on homework while scarfing down my food.
This is a busy time of year, I feel like I must eat while doing something productive. Because eating dinner, nourishing my body isn’t productive enough?? Does anyone else ever feel this urge to discard mealtime as a priority?
That is why I love my crockpot. It allows me to create a delicious, satisfying, and nutritious meal without a whole lot of work. Crockpot recipes are so simple and quick, it frees up time otherwise spent planning and cooking a more complicated meal.
This hearty crockpot chili is a great meal to practice mindfulness. Throwing all the ingredients together in the crockpot takes no time, freeing up space in your schedule to finish wrapping up those presents or to study for that final. So, no excuses! Go ahead and make this chili and practice mindfulness at your next meal time. Enjoy!
