Cynthia Lair's TEDx Talk: How to Cut an Onion (and Be Present with Your Food)

Nutrition faculty member Cynthia Lair shows how cooking can be a form of meditation.

Cynthia Lair, CHN, brings humor and playfulness to her teaching in Bastyr University's nutrition and culinary arts programs. In this TEDxRainier talk, she shows how cooking can be a form of meditation.

"The good intentions and attention that you give your food, it comes back to you and to everyone else at your table," says Lair, an assistant professor and author of the cookbook Feeding the Whole Family.

Hear how she teaches students to be present with their food — and how food responds to loving attention.
