You've probably heard about "mindful eating," but you've wondered what exactly it is. Well, it's knowing what you're eating and why - and taking the time to enjoy every bite!
One of the easiest ways to start becoming a mindful eater is to not settle. If, for instance, you are craving some Chunky Monkey ice cream, don't settle for low-fat frozen yogurt. The fro yo is just a substitute that will likely leave you unfulfilled and still craving the Chunky Monkey, so you'll end up eating the yogurt and heaven only knows what else, before eventually giving in to your craving anyway. You are better off eating a scoop of the good stuff and savoring every spoonful!
