how to be a mindful eater

1 Mindful Hunger When you feel hungry, become aware of your body and think about exactly what it is telling you. Spend a couple of moments noticing the sensations that give you that hunger message. By listening to your body more, it will be able to tell you if it is actually hungry and what it is hungry for. Do this without judgement and accept your feelings for what they are. By doing this, you can learn to accept and understand the real feelings of hunger, rather than just automatically reaching for food when it might not be exactly what you need. 2 Mindful Food Choice When choosing what to eat, take your time and be fully aware of exactly what’s on offer. Think about the difference between the foods, what they’re made…

The extract on pages 58-61 is taken from The Dietitian Kitchen: Nutrition for a Healthy, Strong & Happy You by Kerri Major, published by Meyer & Meyer. (RRP £19.95.) This book contains non-vegan recipes. Mindful eating, sometimes also referred to as intuitive eating, describes the process of raising awareness to what we actually eat. This involves being fully present in the moment, taking in every colour, taste and texture of the food we eat to fully appreciate the sensations, thoughts and emotions that come along with it. This should be done without any judgement on your part to help you appreciate and enjoy your food more. How many of us have been in the situation where we’re standing up while we eat or eating on the go, because eating can sometimes seem…

You can find vintage jewellery sellers at online marketplaces such as Etsy too. When shopping, just be sure to enquire as to the background of the piece you are looking at. Some online sellers also offer reclaimed, or upcycled/recycled jewellery made from unwanted materials.…
