Mindful Eating: Why my New Year’s resolution is to eat more mindfully, not to diet or lose weight
You may be familiar with the term mindfulness, meaning to be aware or conscious in each and every moment. When applied to food mindfulness means being present and aware as you purchase, prepare, serve, and consume your food. It entails being conscious of your senses as you see, hear, feel, smell, and taste your food. It means being aware of the bodily sensations you experience when you are truly hungry and when you are full and noticing how both your mind and body react to specific foods both in the moment and thereafter.
