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


  • Dokkodo
