Greed, Hate, and Delusion at the Door of the Refrigerator” Our approaches to eating teach us a lot about grasping (“I want more ice cream.”), aversion (“I hate raw tomatoes.”), and delusion (“This diet is going to change my life.”) As you probably know, greed, hate, and delusion are the three poisons of mind. It can be helpful to see the poisons reflected in the everyday practice of eating.
