Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meal by Meal is a unique daily meditation book that taps into the healing power of mindfulness as a tool for dealing with issues such as food choice, dieting, and weight loss in a more balanced and sensible manner. Each day is a self-contained journey of conscious eating to nurture a healthier relationship with food.

As sustenance, Buddhist devotee and former monk Donald Altman shares daily meditations including quotes from various sources from around the world: Zen teaching stories, the 6th century Rule of St. Benedict, the Bible, the Buddhist tripitaka scriptures, Hindu scriptures, Native American rituals, and sages from all the major wisdom traditions. Meal by Meal also explores food rituals, eating, preparation, and much more, as it examines perennial food dilemmas, including how we can learn to moderate our thoughts and feelings about food and how we can master mindful techniques to help us transcend our struggles so that we can rest in peace with all of our food choices.

Meal by Meal will give hope to those who are engaged in the difficult, daily struggle for balance around food, and for those who want to nurture a healthy relationship with food.

Synopsis:

Meal by Meal is a book of comfort, guidance, and insight for anyone with an unhealthy relationship with food. Its power is in its approach: each day is a self-contained journey of conscious eating to help people nurture new and sustainable attitudes and practices. Although bad habits cannot be changed overnight, the author, Buddhist devotee Donald Altman, shows how to find peace by focusing on food issues one meal at a time. He shares inspirational daily meditations, including quotes from Zen stories, Native American practices, Hindu scriptures, the Bible, and sages from all major wisdom traditions. He also explores food preparation, rituals, and social attitudes and examines questions like "How can we learn that eating is not a pleasure race, but an area to find grace?" and "How can we stop using food to fill ourselves up, and instead use it to fulfill ourselves?" Through daily reflections, Altman enables people to make wise food choices and create balance in their lives.

Synopsis:

375 daily meditations for finding balance and bliss through mindful eating.
