got my answer from reading Shaila Catherine on the issue of whether enjoyment of pleasurable things such as a good meal is to be avoided in following the Buddhas teaching — “To unhook the attachment to these fragile pleasures, bring mindfulness to your experience of pleasant events throughout your day.
