Eating delicious food is the perfect time to practice mindful awareness.  Savor the flavors, tastes, textures, colors, aromas.

Enjoy the variety and diversity of healthful grains, anti-oxidant rich veggies, colorful fruits, and protein-packed beans and nuts.

And don’t forget to say . . . C~H~E~E~S~E!

Soak it all up with a heaping helping of gratitude . . . and, perhaps, a refreshing glass of wine or an ice cold beer.

Keep at it and you’ll see real progress in other areas of life.  And, as an added bonus, you’ll enjoy your meals more.

Cheers!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Do you pay attention when you eat?  Or do you find that you’ve inhaled a whole bag of chips, an entire carton of ice cream, or a heaping plate of cookies without noticing and enjoying the tastes and textures?

Mindful awareness of simple pleasures and sweet and savory moments adds to our happiness while whittling away at our frustrations (and our waistlines).
