Meaningful Eating

 

I just listened to a great podcast on Meaningful Eating—-Thanks to Underground Wellness for such a great show on how to form a good relationship with food with Christa Orecchio.  Here are some of the key points that I took away from their podcast–and be sure to visit her site at http://thewholejourney.com .

#1  Make the connection with what you are eating while you are doing it–try not to multitask for one meal a day.  Spend some time really thinking about what you are eating

#2  Pace yourself with the slowest eater at the table

#3  Take your food on a date–the grass is always greener where you water it-so give your food some love and you will have a much less toxic relationship with it.

#4  Create new good rituals with your food–don’t just do it mindlessly

#5  Make eating an act all by  itself

#6  Don’t eat when you are upset

#7  Check in and ask yourself if you are hungry—take a deep breath before eating

#8  Eat slower so you will know when you are 80% full–never eat past this
