Mastering Mindful Eating

Transform Your Relationship with Food, Plus 30 Recipes to Engage the Senses (A S elf Care Cookbook)
by Michelle Babb, MS, RD, CD

Transform your relationship with food and develop healthy eating habits with practical advice and 30 nutritious recipes from a registered dietitian.

Discover the art and science of mindful eating!
Eating a sandwich while running from a bear isn’t good for digestion or nutrition. That’s exactly what we’re doing when eating a meal on the run or being distracted by computers, TVs, and our phones. Rather than nourishing our bodies, we are feeding anxiety and poor habits that prevent our systems from functioning well.

Author and registered dietitian Michelle Babb shows you how to practice mindful eating that lets your body access the nutrients from food and turn on its self-regulating system. When you build a positive relationship with food, you reduce binge and emotional eating—and can shed pounds, maintain your healthiest weight, and ensure optimal digestion. Here, you’ll learn how to:

• Bring your attention to eating
• Engage the senses (tune into smell, taste, texture, thoughts) while eating
• Identify your habits and patterns around food
• Eat when you’re hungry (and know when you’re full) 
• Discover foods that taste good (and make you feel good)
• Whip 30 vegetarian recipes designed to engage all your senses
Whether you are trying to lose weight, recover from an eating disorder, or improve your overall state of calm and wellness, this book helps you change your relationship with food and cultivate a positive eating mindset.
