Can you be still?

Did you ever stop to taste a carrot?  Not just eat it, but taste it?
You can't taste the beauty and energy of the earth in a Twinkie.  ~Astrid Alauda
Can you be still while you eat?  Still enough to really taste what you are eating?  Still enough to taste the beauty and the energy?  Still enough to be thankful for your meal?  Stillness comes from within, and can lead to such a dramatic change in how you eat and enjoy your food.  Be still...

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Tomato and Avocado Salad

6 portobello mushrooms with the stem removed
1 avocado
1 tomato
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1-2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh basil torn or snipped
salt and pepper

Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, basil and S&P.  Add chopped tomato, chopped avocado and crumbled feta.  Let sit for at least 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  
Brush mushrooms with olive oil and sprinkle with cracked pepper, grill over high heat until it has nice grill marks and is just starting to brown.
Top mushrooms with salad mix and serve.

Tip: these make a great vegetarian meal with a little bread on the side, and/or are just as nice on the side of a perfectly grilled steak!  You decide!
