“Mindful eating helps us learn to hear what our body is telling us about hunger and satisfaction. It helps us become aware of who in the body/heart/mind complex is hungry, and how and what is best to nourish it.” ~ Jan Chozen Bays M.D., for Psychology Today.
So many of us eat on the run, snack on fast food on the way to an event, and rush our children through dinner to get them to sports or into homework before bed.
