  • Mindful eating is the practice of cultivating an awareness of how the foods you choose to eat affect your body and mind. The practice enhances your understanding of what to eat, how to eat, how much to eat, and why you eat what you eat. When eating mindfully, you are fully present and savour every bite while engaging all of your senses to appreciate your food. Beyond just taste, you may notice the appearance, sounds, smells, and textures of foods as well as your mind's response to these observations. 
  • Research has shown that eating mindfully may improve digestion, regulate appetite and help enjoy food much more. Tuning into what you eat can also help you in make better choices and avoid overeating.
