Are the snacks calling you?

With Covid, have you been sneaking into the snack cabinet a bit more than usual? Well, my family and I have been experiencing just that. Especially, my 9-year old daughter who forages for food every 15 minutes! It’s not that she is truly hungry but most likely bored, overwhelmed by her school work or frustrated with her homeschool teachers. LOL.

Ask yourself, are you truly hungry or did you get hit by an eating trigger. Are you stressed out? Are you hungry for something else, say, human connection?

I’m very excited to talk about Mindful Eating since, from personal experience, it I can tell you exactly what it is not. With the luxuries of the 21st century, many of us are very disconnected with our food. We can buy food that’s been shipped 1000’s of miles, with a few clicks on our phone, we can get food delivered right to our door and we often do not appreciate the wonderful smells and tasted or appreciate how it nourishes and heals our body.

I’d like to talk about why we eat when we’re not truly hungry. And, give you tips and tools that you can immediately add to your everyday life….
