About The Event
Unlike sleeping and breathing, eating requires some deliberate engagement on our part. We need to make decisions on what we gather, shop for and select. That's why mindful eating is so important - it allows us to make meaningful, clear choices about the food we're eating and why.
Mindful eating can be a challenging topic for a lot of people, mainly because they are unsure of exactly what mindful eating means. The core principles of mindful eating are simple:
● Bring awareness to nourishing properties of food through the process of food preparation and consumption
● Select enjoyable and nutritious foods
● Acknowledge food preferences non-judgmentally and give permission to enjoy fun foods
● Recognize and honor physical hunger and satiety cues
● Use wisdom to guide eating decisions
These five principles can help guide you in your mindful eating journey. What is one way you have incorporated these principles into your daily eating habits?
