Mindful eating is intentional eating, done slowly and with a sense of gratitude.
- It helps us discern the difference between physical hunger and emotional need.
- It gives us time to realize when we’re full.
- We’re much more likely to eat for the right reasons and choose healthy foods.
Portico staff created this table tent as a simple visual cue you can use daily to establish a mindful eating practice.
