“How we prepare our food, how we consume our food really makes a difference in how our food satisfies us and shapes the role we give food in our lives. Is it something we stuff in to satisfy an urge or something we savor to feed us physically and sustain us spiritually?” Mary De Turris Poust
Celebrity Chef Heston Blumenthal’s temper used to be as notorious as his food. Documented as chasing his enemies with a meat cleaver, a car and even threatening someone with a gun he admitted to suffering from fits of rage. Heston’s ex-wife often urged him to seek help with his anger which he did through a therapist, a cranial osteopath and a faith healer. Unable to sustain a sense of calm Heston turned to mindfulness two years after his divorce.
Heston now says his temper is under control due to integrating mindfulness into his daily life especially at meal times.
Heston says “Mindfulness is just brilliant. It’s about being completely in the moment”. He says he has not lost his temper at all since he developed a practice “not even a frown. It’s like I’m a different person”.
