As Barbara continues to evolve spiritually, a holistic approach to life greatly influences her perception of the world. This most certainly includes food, which she considers to be sacred. According to Barbara, how you feel about what you put into your body can influence you as much as "what" you actually put into your body. She believes a positive attitude can make a huge difference in how the body utilizes the nutrients it's being fed. Barbara practices  what many call "mindful eating" or "conscious eating." This basically means taking a pause to be present before eating, and spending a moment in gratitude to the Source of the ingredients in any meal. Most of us are in the habit of sitting down to eat in an unconscious state, and barely taking the time to taste, smell and feel our connection to the food we are putting into our bodies to nourish us.
