“Mindful eating is the practice of paying full attention to every aspect of the eating experience— food choice, meal environment, and even the physical sensations before, during, and after a meal. It draws on principles from mindfulness practice, which seeks to engage all of the senses to deepen the experience of the present moment. With time, mindful eating can help us observe our physical and emotional responses to food without judgment and enhance our understanding of how food affects our health.”
