What is all this talk about mindful eating?
MINDFULNESS is simply the moment-by-moment awareness of life.
But we all know it’s not always so simple! We so easily get caught up in our own thoughts, self-talk, and helping others that we are scarcely aware of life as it passes us by.
This is ALSO very true of our eating.
We eat meal after meal, snack after snack, barely aware of what we’re eating and how much we’re consuming.
Often we are eating on the run whilst trying to get our kids to sport or music classes, helping them with homework or clearing up. We hardly get time to sit down and finish a cup of coffee let alone a whole meal without Mom, Mom, MOM, MOM, MMMMMMMOOOOOOOOMMMMMM happening!
So what is mindful eating, and how can you start doing it, and why?
All great questions and over the next few blog posts I am going to address these questions in my blogs over the next few weeks. But today I wanted to share with you 2 recipes that I took from this article in the huffingtonpost that I loved. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michelle-may-md/mindful-eating_b_2240255.html
