Mindfulness is a frequently used term that can mean different things to different people. Often associated with Buddhist-inspired meditative practices, it also refers to a way of approaching the world. In this context, mindfulness practices can also be applied to food production and consumption. This Forbes article, for example, encourages readers to take a broad view with regard to the practice of mindfulness. Author Phil Lempert, known as the SupermarketGuru, defines mindfulness as “the quality or state of being conscious or aware.” This makes mindfulness a concept that can be applied to all areas of life, including eating, grocery shopping, and your food business.
