I recently gave a Mindful Eating workshop and wanted to share some of the main highlights for those that couldn't make it! I am also sharing the yummy Kombucha Sangria that I made for the event. Hope to see you at the next one!
We are always being told what we should be eating, but how does that help if we still have a poor understanding of the how/why?
Mindful eating is the practice of making conscious food choices in response to physical and physiological hunger and satiety cues. A simplified definition is learning and listening to your body telling you when it is hungry and when it is full. This can be really challenging, especially when there are emotional responses to food both good and bad. That's where the mindful eating cycle comes in handy.
