Eat simple, eat less
When you pursue the pleasure of the tongue, you stop appreciating simple food — food that is made with less ingredients, less preparation, and least processing.
Why it matters:
- Eating rich food leads to Easy dopamine hits. Over time this transitions into gluttony (over-eating), which eventually results in bad health. Once we’ve reached this point, we eat only to seek comfort from the pain of food craving.
- More importantly, you need to eat food that gives appropriate nutrition for a life of focus and ongoing practice.
Examples: Below are examples of low ingredient foods:
- Sushi — simply vinegar-rice with raw fish
- Black coffee or green tea without milk and sugar
- Hummus — chick pea paste with olive oil
- Do intermittent fasting
