Our relationship with food is a central one that reflects our attitudes toward our environment and ourselves. As a practice, mindful eating can bring us awareness of our own actions, thoughts, feelings and motivations, and insight into the roots of health and contentment.
Mindful eating is allowing yourself to become aware of the positive and nurturing opportunities that are available through food selection and preparation by respecting your own inner wisdom. You can change your relationship to food by:
• using all your senses in choosing to eat food that is both satisfying to you and nourishing to your body
• acknowledging your responses to food (likes, dislikes or neutral) without judgment
• becoming aware of physical hunger and satiety cues to guide your decisions to begin and end eating
