Practices of mindful eating 

By Marco Christiansen | Jun 21, 2021

Honor the food

Recognize the grower and chef. Distraction-free eating enhances the experience.

Immerse yourself

Notice the food's sounds, colors, smells, tastes, textures, and how it makes you feel. Engage your senses by pausing.

Minimize portions

This prevents overeating and food waste. Fill a 9-inch dinner plate once.

Chew slowly

These methods can help you savor your meal.

Slow eating prevents overeating.

Eating slowly helps you know when you're satisfied or 80% full and can stop eating.

Don’t skip meals

Hunger may cause you to choose the fastest and unhealthiest food. Eating regularly and slowly reduces these risks.

For health and the environment, eat plants

Eat plants for health and the environment. Food's long-term effects. Saturated fat and processed meat increase heart and colon cancer risk. Plant-based foods are greener than animal products.
