Mindful Eating takes the concept of mindfulness, or “bringing purposeful awareness to your senses without judgement,” to the experience of eating. This approach zeros in on an individual’s sensual awareness of the eating experience, from purchasing and preparing food, setting up the eating environment, to the food itself. It is an invitation to experience eating in a way that may be different from how you normally eat.
