What is Mindful Nutrition?
It is a state of being aware. It is a process of observation and attention in the flow of changing stimuli and perceptions. Mindfulness is ‘in the moment’, present, engaged awareness. Mindfulness is not a passive state; we apply intention when we are mindful. I take this approach with Nutrition for the Mind and Body.
mindful nutrition is a key to mental health and combating stress. Choose alkaline-forming foods rich in Omega-3 EFAs, eat nutrient-dense, high net-gain foods for energy, avoid allergens and supplement with superfoods that support hormonal health, and you’re on your way to feeling great for life. Learn to make it taste good!
Choosing to eat food that is both pleasing to you and nourishing to your body by using all your senses to explore, savor and taste.
Experience food deeply, with all your senses.
Simple changing the quality of what you eat can dramatically change your life.
What do I mean by quality? Well fist we must define Food. In my opinion nothing that is not recognized by the human ecology as a useable nutrient is not by any standards food. Food is useable nutrients that can and will be correctly and efficiently assimilated. “Foods” that have as little non-useful elements and are comprised primarily of useful nutrients are higher quality food. More fuel less junk or biologically speaking, more medicine with less side effects. Side effects being weight gain, aging, digestive de habilitation, mental fogginess, sleepiness… Therefore, learning how quality food can directly affects our body, mind and spirit is the key.
