Mindful eating is derived from a Buddhist concept called mindfulness where the main idea is to embrace your subconscious’s basic and raw desires associated with eating. Some of the fundamentals that one needs to follow while adopting this way of life are as follows:
Appreciate your food – understand its origins and the way it gets assimilated into your body to become a form of nutrition for you
Take a moment to reflect on the many elements, such as the rain, sunshine, earth, and air that have come together to create this food that will nourish you. Open to the feeling of gratitude for having food, and to all of the people who grew, picked, dried, packed and transported this food so that you could hold in our hands.
Recognize your inner guilts, cravings, and anxieties that you have when it comes to your food. Understand that every human has them and feel the freedom to respect the ones that arise from within you
While eating, notice your food and appreciate its color texture, and burst of flavors. Listen to the sound that your cutlery or hands make when they come into contact with that food.
Observe how different foods have a different reaction on your state of mind and on your body
