Hooray for summer BBQs, s’mores on the campfire, and farmers markets. Summer is the perfect time to start practicing mindful eating. It begins with knowing where your food comes from and the process continues through to the last, delicious bite.
A great way to introduce mindful eating into your life is to prepare something fresh and delicious that brings you joy. Now that summer is upon is, pick up some beautiful, local produce. Try a new recipe or keep it simple and enjoy a bowl of freshly picked berries.
Let’s skip to the best part: the eating! For the purpose of this exercise, let’s imagine we are enjoying some ripe strawberries.
That’s it. It’s not more complicated than that. The point is to appreciate the full sensory experience of your food. We are so busy and, especially if you are a parent, you likely shovel in a handful of whatever you can find or what’s left on your kid’s plate.
Of course, we don’t all have the luxury of following these steps for every meal…so try it once a week or perhaps incorporate it into your morning coffee routine. When you slowly and thoughtfully enjoy your food, you will reap the benefits far beyond that one meal.
Pssst: We recognize that food can be triggering for many people. Please follow these recommendations as best suits your lifestyle.
