Bellamy’s Organic. Mindfulness Nurtured Via Observations From Nature

bellamysorganic - Vegetables Versus Fruits

Last night my daughter and I sat down to watch one of David Attenborough’s The life Of Reptiles DVDs.

It showed the slow hunt of Komodo Dragons on a buffalo.

Eventually the buffalo gave up, died, and the Komodos did feast.  It wasn’t too graphic, but showed enough so that she clearly understood what was happening, with additional commentary from me.

At first, she was perturbed by the buffalo’s death.  There were questions,

“Why can’t they eat something that’s already dead?”

After responding, “Would you eat something that was already dead on the ground?  Or would you prefer fresh food?” To that – a scrunched up little nose.

I moved on to emphasise that, as Sir David noted, 1 buffalo fed 10 Komodo dragons, and they wasted nothing.

I saw opportunity here and seized it.

Comparing animals and humans and their attitude to food usage, animals take what they need, and they don’t waste food.  I pointed out that the remains of the buffalo showed no trace of meat; the dragons consumed everything available, and in doing so, respected the food and the animal.

Now take a look at humans.  We take more than we need, we let it rot, then throw it out.  In many cases we do not show proper respect for the food we have been given, or those who prepared and grew it.

“For example, how much food in your lunchbox gets wasted each day?”

I could see her mind ticking over, and her head slowly nodding…

There are many great examples in nature, like the buffalo and the Komodo dragons, of mindful eating that we might follow if we take the time to notice, and spend the time relating these to our children.

To be mindful of what you eat and how you look after your body is about caring and respect.  That caring may then be encouraged to extend to the things around us like our food and they way we look after land; things that ultimately affect our minds and bodies.

More than nurturing an idea that mindful eating is “good”, we answer the question, “WHY”, which is ever more important in developing a child’s decision making process.

This answer to the question, why?, is why Bellamy’s Organic exists.
