Mindful Meals

The people you eat your meals with are just as important as the food you feed your body.  Being mindful of healthy foods is the first step, but being aware of who you are eating your meals with and where you eat, is just as important as the food you put into your body.

It’s during meal time that we can practice mindful eating.  When was the last time you actually tasted, smelled, or enjoyed your food?  We get so busy that its easy to just rush through a meal without even tasting it.

Next time you sit down to eat, look at the food that you are eating, look at the colors and textures, smell the aroma and take mindful bites.  Chew your food slowly and consciously, and finally enjoy the company you are eating with.  Surround yourself with healthy and happy people, as they aid in good digestion.

Eating not only nourishes our bodies, but it nourishes the soul.

Bon appetite!

    Great information. Remembering to slow down and be mindful is so important not only in eating, but in many aspects of our lives.

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you need to publish more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t speak about such issues.

    To the next! Many thanks!!

      Thank you. I would be happy to write more on this subject. Sometimes the people we eat our meals with, or the environments we eat in are toxic. There are so many levels to being mindful. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
