It’s only by bringing a habit into your conscious awareness that you can observe what it’s doing, how it empowers and serves you or doesn’t.

Jeff Olson

 

What is mindful eating? Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just about chewing slowly and paying attention to flavors. It's an approach that goes beyond what's on your plate. Mindful eating is deeply rooted in being present, appreciating each sensation, and building a connection between your mind and body.

The research shows that when you eat and drink mindfully, you benefit from:

  • Reduced anxiety and weight gain
  • Improved emotional eating and binge eating behaviors[HH1]
  • A nonjudgmental attitude towards food
  • A higher diet quality and healthier snack choices
  • Improved eating behaviors, such as recognizing fullness and controlling overeating

Over the next 10 days, the goal of this challenge is to turn your relationship with food into a source of joy, nourishment, and balance. We’ll do this through simple, manageable changes that — through repetition and dedication — may someday become healthy habits.

Get ready to discover the magic of mindful portions — where each bite is a step toward a healthier, more harmonious you.

Love this! Being mindful in my day has helped me feel more present and calm. Why not with my diet, too!? Sipping some morning coffee. Got to go 😊☕️🌅🌥️😆 

I love diet sodas, so instead of buying that, I go for sparkling water instead!😍

Very nice! What are your favorites?

I have been practicing mindful eating since 3/15/24.  I have lost 42 pounds and keep it off.  I still have a ways to go but I am conscious of what I eat, when I eat it and most importantly why!

@snolan That's amazing! 

Starting the paleo Diet. I had great success with this diet in the past, not only to lose weight but makes me feel better. 

Drinking herbal teas instead of coffee with cream

Awesome, ate a salad for breakfast.

We tend to eat a lot of soups especially during the Winter Season. I don't cook, but my husband does & he literally throws in the kitchen sink as the saying goes. I’ve always rotated my stock, it’s my obsession. Great challenge!!

I am actually doing this tonight i did not even know that this challenge was here until just now 😎

@mcurley67 what perfect timing! What kind of soup did you make?

We have our pantry organized by food categories…vegetables, kinds of pasta, sauces, soups, and a section dedicated to Mexican cuisine (my favorite).  We have also found it helpful to rotate our items when we make new purchases, so the new items go in the back of the pantry.

@Klszcz the rotating is super smart! I definitely need to be better about moving things up in my cabinets!
