Mindful eating?

Sunday, April 17, 2016

I've subscribed to posts from mindful.org on facebook. This morning I decided to see what they had to say about food, overeating, etc. Lots!

Here's an example:

It reminds me of one Sunday as part of the children's story, one of our ministers talked to the children about an apple he had in his hand. I forget the story context, but I remember him talking about how the apple was grown, how it got from orchard to home, how it looked, how it smelled, cutting it crosswise and marvelling at the star-shaped pattern of the seeds, and describing how it would feel and taste when bitten into. It was an astonishing description of a simple fruit that we take for granted.

    Good article - there are times I realize that my plate is empty and I can't remember tasting the food I ate.

    I will try 'mindful' eating!
