Mindfulness Exercises: 

Inhale the steam from the soup, allowing it to penetrate your senses.

Contemplate the labors of the farmer who grew and harvested the potatoes.

Eat just one piece of potato, then just a pea, then just a spoonful of broth, savoring each.Pause. Now enjoy all three at once. Contemplate the differences.
