CHEW-A-THON: Day Two: Give Chew a Chance

September 10th, 2009


Hi there,

So, hanging out in the Chew Chat Room this morning, I chatted with some people from the Czech Republic.  Later on in the day, Canadians and Americans alike celebrated the benefits of the Big Chew.  It was wonderful.

I felt today like I was completely in my body, and therefore in my feelings.  Moment after moment, life just happened through me.  No biggie.  No drama.  Just being.  Truth be told, I am very acquainted with the little dramas that my mind creates and, at certain moments, I missed them.  Clear consciousness, when not enjoyed, can be a little… boring?!  But that’s cool.  Moments cascade into moments and everything changes.

Then I cheated.  At a party… veggie chips get passed… THOSE DAMN VEGGIE CHIPS!  And I was, frankly, too embarrassed to stop and chew mid-conversation, as in: "Yeah, I’ve lived in L.A. for, like… (chew one hundred times)… a year now!"  It just wasn’t going to happen.

But I’m back on the wagon.

By the way, I learned a couple of great things to today.  First, there’s a group on Facebook for macrobiotic parents!  Second, a woman named Sarah logged into the chat room from Prince Edward Island, Canada (home of Anne of Green Gables) and she runs a great website called  Although in Canada, it’s probably pronounced Macro Mum!  Check them out!

Off to bed,

    So glad you’re doing this Jessica. But wish I could get chat better – any way to see the chats you were talking about? I got on, but there were no responses, so left. When is there more traffic there??

    It’s quite a challenge to keep chewing – kind of does get boring. Keep reminding us of all the benefits, it’s encouraging!!

    Hi Jessica
    Enjoying ur website. We met a few years ago with my husband on the cruise. I tried to email u but the address doesnt work anymore, so I hope it is ok to leave my question here. I have moved to NYC and was wondering if you could give me any names of people who have cooking classes, food delivery etc. I would really appreciate any of your help.
    Thank you
