Mindful eating is a way to enjoy and find pleasure in one of the most ordinary things we do. Most of the time we are so busy devouring, mindlessly, we miss the satisfaction and true enjoyment of consuming food and drink. Being conscious of what you eat involves taking the time to truly observe, savour and appreciate what we put into our bodies. It also includes using our best wisdom and knowledge to choose wholesome foods, being conscious of what is involved to get them to our table.

Can’t believe it … I fed my kids completely the wrong thing for breakfast (according to Ayurvedic principles). But what did I know. I’ve eaten it all my life.
Thank goodness for Cate Stillman, YogaHealer, and her easy to employ body care skills.
As I spoke with Cate during our recent interview the idea of adopting a few basic Ayurvedic practices into our lives felt more and more doable. I have a very basic understanding of Ayurveda and know I’m a strong Pitt with Vata tendencies and some ways to help keep that in balance. But there is tons I don’t know, especially as it relates to my family and raising my children with awareness of their bodies. Sure we do yoga together, make what I believe to be healthy food choices most of the time (… I do love my chocolate), and try to get adequate rest. However, I also know that we could live healthier, more vital lives with a few tweaks here and there.
