Mindful Eating Strategy

by Diane Lofshult on Jul 01, 2007

Did you know that eating more slowly and mindfully can actually reduce the amount of food you consume at each meal? That’s one reason why so many nutrition experts recommend savoring every bite you take! To remember to appreciate your meals and to heighten the dining experience, keep these words in mind:

“ Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world revolves— slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.

Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.”

Thich Nhat Hanh, meditation teacher
