Mindful Eating in Six Words: Eat food with purpose, on purpose.
These six words sum up as simply as possible my own philosophy about the concept of mindful eating. Sure, mindful eating is much more complex. But, hopefully, these six words give you a little inspiration. Whenever you are about to take a bite ask yourself, "Am I eating this food, with and on purpose?" In other words, are you intentionally and consciously choosing what you eat rather than consuming food out of mindless habit. Also, is the food serving a purpose such as satisfying hunger or adding nutrition to your body? Much of mindless eating has no purpose or function.
Eat. Mindful: Taste, enjoy, sit down, and savor. Mindless: Grazing, nibbling, shoveling food in your mouth.
