Feel Good Friday…The Yoga of Taking Food
One of the keys to weight control is to enjoy the food you are eating. Whether it is a slice of tomato, a Doritos chip, or a slice of warm bread from the oven slathered with butter taking the time to really experience the experience of taking food.
“Savor: Mindful Eating, Mindful Life” was written by a Harvard Nutritionist, Dr. Lilian Cheung and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Thich Nhat Hanh. The book explores our relationship with the food we eat and provides some concrete tips to slow down and savor the experience of eating.
In this 3 minute video Dr. Cheung explains how honoring and being mindful of the food we are eating makes us healthier. She also gives seven simple practices (I said simple not easy!) we can implement almost immediately that will help us enjoy our food more, maintain a healthier weight, and live a happier life.
