Everywhere you look you will see articles about clean eating, raw foods and mindful eating. Is this the new way of eating for our generation?
I can’t imagine our family ever going without the odd burger ( homemade of course ) Chips and a good serving of chocolate cake BUT everything in moderation right?
In my eyes that’s what mindful eating is, being aware of what you are eating. Knowing that if you eat something indulgent for lunch perhaps you should eat something lighter for your next meal. Perhaps you shouldn’t have pudding after every meal and pancakes for breakfast could become your Sunday special.. After all eat them too often and they are no longer a treat.
I don’t like to view foods as bad, or call myself naughty for eating them. I’m an adult and I choose what I eat.
Sometimes that’s fruit..sometimes that’s fudge.
There is an interesting article on mindful eating here on the Legal & General site.
We have recently tried out one of the popular food meal boxes: Hello Fresh. All the produce was fresh, the meat was lean and healthy. Herbs, chillies, chopped tomatoes and coconut water were finishing touches to the meals. Whilst it’s not the type of thing I would do every month it was nice to try it out and I could certainly see us using something like this when we knew we had a busy week coming up.
It felt good to have a week of eating really well.
We have also started making loads of smoothies in our Bella Extract Pro and fresh veggie soups in the kCook.
What do you think of the Mindful Eating movement?
