Before You Eat Do This

Clean Eating Challenge Day 4. So far we talked about what clean eating is, substitution not deprivation. Hydrating with water, now let’s talk about how you eat.

Do you eat quick, fast, and in a hurry? Are you eating at your desk, I n front of the tv? Be honest. When was the last time you sat down and really enjoyed your food?

Healthy living does mean more home cooked meals. When you think about most comfort foods, they are what mom or grandma made – from “scratch” what is now more commonly referred to as “whole foods”. It taste so good and as my kids will say you can taste all the love, hugs, and kisses in it ☺ which is true.

So take your time to sit down, honor your body and enjoy the food you’re fueling it with.
Eat with your eyes – enjoy how it looks, the presentation. Give thanks.
Smell the flavor – smell the herbs and spices. This will enhance the tasting experience.
Chew your food – completely chew each bite before you raise your fork for the next bite.
All these steps help you to keep the pounds off.  Just by slowing down alone, you allow your stomach to get full before you over fill it.  Chewing your food completely will assist in the digestive process.
