“Mindful Eating” is one mealtime skill that can fit with any healthy eating style. This practice involves applying simple mindfulness techniques to the process of eating. Research has shown that eating mindfully may help you to eat smaller portions and fewer calories and reduce emotional eating. Taking a more “mindful” approach to eating can enhance the enjoyment of your meals, aid good digestion, reduce anxious thoughts surrounding food, and improve your overall relationship with food.
