Mindful eating is the practice of eating a meal in a state of being sensually awakened. This practice shifts our bodies into a parasympathetic state of rest and digest. By slowing down and being present with the food we are consuming, we actually improve digestion, increase eating intuition (think stopping when full), increase nutrient absorption, lower blood pressure and cortisol levels, and your food even tastes better!
How we eat is tied to how we feel, and how we feel is tied to how we eat.
