Do you gobble, gulp and guzzle?
Do you select, sort and savor?
I’ll admit, I strive for the latter, but have been guilty of the former. Mindful eating and taking the time to savor and enjoy meals is important and leads to a more satisfying and healthier lifestyle. Sitting down and giving thanks for the food in front of us sets the right tone.
Today, and tonight, observe how you eat.
Why not try eating a little earlier so that you’re not so hungry that you gobble from the pan while standing up as you serve yourself or your family? Not that I’ve ever done this. 🙂
Or, make the plates pretty by arranging the color spectrum of veggies around your whole grains and protein? I’ve noticed that if I attempt to make a prettier presentation, I usually slow down and savor my meal more.
As always, please share your thoughts, tips and ideas for a more mindful and MORSELICIOUS way of eating.
