Mindful Eating

     One of the dietary changes that comes along with Clean Eating is being much more mindful concerning not just of what you are eating, but also how you are eating. Where you are eating. What sparks you to be eating. When every bite counts - when every bite enhances your body, you begin to take pleasure in the act of nourishing your body. As your taste buds reset to the factory standard, you begin to appreciate the inherent sweetness in an apple, the umami in hummus and crackers - the simple yet nutritious protein of the edamame.

Make eating purposeful, not mindless. Whenever you put food in your mouth, peel it, unwrap it, plate it, and sit. Engage all of the senses in the pleasure of nourishing your body.
