Mindfulness can carry over to what and how we eat . . . with good results.

By paying attention, we tend to stop when we are satisfied rather than waiting until we are stuffed.  We do a better job chewing and tasting our foods which gives our stomach time to tell the brain, “yup, we’re good.”

When we are paying attention to the choices we make, we tend to make better nutritional choices.  We eat more fruits and veggies and cut back on sugar, salt, additives, GMO’s, fast foods, junk foods, etc.

And our bodies thank us.

We feel younger, more energetic, and we may even drop a few pounds.

Aah . . . that’s better!
