Mindfulness Eating

Slow down! It can take up to 20 minutes for your stomach to signal to your brain that it’s full. Try putting your fork down after every couple of bites, an be sure yo actually chew your food (aim for 30 times!) Before going for a second helping give yourself 20minutesto digest, then reassess your hunger. Drinking a glass of water can also help you determine if you’re really hunger vs. merely thirsty.

Savor the flavor! How often do you take the time to enjoy the appearance, aroma, texture and taste of every food that lands on your tongue. Instead of eating simply to feel full , aim your brain at appreciating each bite .Being more present during mealtime can help you feel satisfied once you’ve had enough.

Savor: Entertaining with
Charcuterie, Cheese,
Spreads & More

      That is wonderful to be taught such mindful lessons at such a young age. I grew up below the poverty line so food, was scarce, but over the last 20 or years I like to think I mastered these lessons.
