Mindful Eating Tip of the Day

“Never eat anything you don’t enjoy, and truly enjoy everything you eat.” 

At a recent Mother’s Day party, I was eating a side dish and I caught myself thinking “I don’t really like this, it’s only on my plate because my aunt told me it was good.” Shaking the food police is going to be tough, but have a plan when you go to parties. Let other people go first in the buffet line. Walk through the line once and take it all in. Then, go back to get your plate and make sure you only take food you really enjoy. Eat slowly and listen to your hunger cues. Stuffing yourself full is no fun plus, I’m sure you want to leave room for a tasty dessert!
