Mindful eating: 8 things to keep in mind

Mindful eating is essentially defined as the act of being truly present with your food. But, to me, it's also about so much more. There's a few key considerations to factor in if you want to become a mindful eater or an even more mindful eater! These are the top 8 tips I share with my clients, friends and fam...

  • do you eat with the seasons? 🍂 For example, warming foods in winter and cooling foods in the summer?

  • do you know your Ayurvedic dosha (or constitution) - are you a vata, pitta or kapha? 🍃 If so, are you eating in a way that pacifies your dominant dosha or aggravates it? You can take a free test online to find out your dosha, just search "ayurvedic dosha type test" and set aside about 10 minutes or so to complete the comprehensive questionnaire

  • what times of the day do you typically eat breakfast, lunch and dinner? 🍽️ Are you eating late at night when your digestion is hankering down for the night? How do you space out your meals and snacks to maintain your blood sugar levels?

  • when was the last time you practiced gratitude or giving thanks for the meal on your plate, the food in your fridge, the chefs that prepared your meal?🙏

  • how in-tune with your body are you during and after eating? Are there certain foods that continually bloat you or leaving you feeling brain foggy, gassy or lethargic, for example? 🧀🍞 #foodcoma

  • do you eat because you're truly hungry OR bored, lonely, sad, mad, stressed, overwhelmed, emotional? 😩

  • When was the last time you ate a meal and did nothing else? No scrolling Insta, watching TV or multi-tasking etc... 📺 Just appreciating your food and focusing on chewing and digesting mindfully, that's all.

  • what might your food cravings be telling you? If you aren't actually hungry, but continually reaching for food, is there a more nourishing action you could take to 'fill yourself up'? Maybe you just need a hug, a warming cup of tea or some time in nature!? ❤️

Have a great day beautiful souls.

p.s bonus one for women: do you eat in harmony with your feminine cycle? Are you in-tune with your body's nutritional needs at different times of your cycle? 👭
