I have two more recipes from our Summer Potluck for you this time. Donna made a Lemon Meringue Pie using that new idea for meringue --- "aquafaba" ---- using the water from a can of chickpeas instead of eggwhites. It was delicious!

    Sigrid writes: This is my variation of a salad served at a German friend’s house! The proportions of the ingredients are my approximations and can be changed. I like celery root that is not used much here, but you can substitute several sliced-up celery stalks.

The Five Contemplations

Our Summer 2016 Potluck — Portland, Oregon, USA

The Contemplations are spoken before meals in the Order of Interbeing:

  • This food is a gift of the earth, the sky, numerous living beings, and much hard and loving work.
  • May we eat with mindfulness and gratitude so as to be worthy to receive this food.
  • May we recognize and transform unwholesome mental formations, especially our greed and learn to eat with moderation.
  • May we keep our compassion alive by eating in such a way that reduces the suffering of living beings, stops contributing to climate change, and heals and preserves our precious planet.
  • We accept this food so that we may nurture our brotherhood and sisterhood, build our sangha [community], and nourish our ideal of serving all living beings.

These principles guide our mission on this website: to facilitate cooking and eating with mindfulness in such a way that we help to reduce the suffering of living beings, preserve our planet, and reverse the process of global warming.
