Mindfulness matters. To be mindful, according to Merriam-Webster is to bear in mind or inclined to be aware, but how often are we really mindful? More often than not I know I grind through my to do list one item at a time, responding to texts with rapid fire speed, and inhale meals without tasting it because I’m too busy to sit and enjoy it. The only thing I mind is completing everything I set out to do, very rarely do I feel as if I am aware on a deeper level. That being said, when I got contacted for a recent commission the name definitely inspired me to get back to just maybe being a little more mindful.
A couple years ago, I worked at the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts here inAustin. I had no idea how many wonderful people I would meet working there. I have stayed connected with many of the students and I can’t tell you how inspiring it is to watch their stories and culinary adventures unfold. One student I stay in touch with, Lana, has recently started her own business. As someone that has taken the plunge to running her own business, it’s fair to say, I have a little bit of a soft spot for other like minded lady entrepreneurs.
Lana has recently launched the Mindful Bowl project. The Mindful Bowl is a buddha bowl inspired meal prep service. Perfect for folks that are on the go who aren’t exactly mindful about what they’re putting into their bodies all the time…. Hmmm, like me?
Lana reached out to me for a custom towel with her branding for her start up. I was more than happy to team up and provide a little prop action to spruce up her photos. Although, with all the natural color from those veggies, I’m not sure how much a towel will offer. (insert winking emoji here).
