I normally do a recipe each week, but life is about changes and I am passionate about mindful eating.
We have all done it, eating whilst reading a book, or watching the television. Did we notice what we ate? Did we notice how much we ate? More importantly did we taste what we ate? I bet like me your answer is a big massive NO.
I think again it is about shifting our mindset and making all our meals an event, yes, a wonderful moment to enjoy every mouthful……. I know, I know we don’t always have time…. But don’t we? Instead of eating our sandwich at our desk go outside and enjoy your sandwich in the sunshine, then go back to your desk. We all can take 10 minutes out of our busy routines to enjoy the food we are eating.
We spend a lot of time focusing on our yoga, asanas and meditation. I now think it is time we also focused on our food, in the evening maybe we can linger and chat with loved ones, we can create a positive atmosphere, but let’s sit down and enjoy, savour flavours and focus on eating.
By eating well, we know when we are full, which in turn will give us more energy, more positivity and keep us more satisfied.
