Mastering Mindful Eating: Transform Your Relationship with Food, Plus 30 Recipes to Engage the Senses (Paperback)
I am a huge fan of dietician Michelle Babb's always calm and sensible books on food as a happy, nourishing, healing part of our life. She breaks down the damage done by diets, fads, and low self-esteem, and instead instills a healthy relationship with our bodies and food. Becoming more mindful and listening to what our bodies say, feel, and enjoy, while serving foods that are fresh, non-processed, and without extra sugars and chemicals, will bring a more natural, healthful life. She includes some wonderful recipes, too! ~ Victoria— From Victoria
Transform your relationship with food and develop healthy eating habits through mindfulness in this cookbook and guide from a renowned nutritionist.
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. 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 newspapers. 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. It's the sustainable way to shed pounds, maintain your healthiest weight, and ensure optimal digestion. When you build a positive relationship with food, you reduce binge and emotional eating. Included in the book are 30 vegetarian recipes designed to enhance your introduction to mindful eating by engaging all the senses.
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)
