Mindful Eating Challenge #2

I had a little bit of trouble with this challenge. I was on a field trip with my clients. It was difficult to have any quiet & privacy at all, as it is thrilling for clients to watch their teacher eat lunch. Paparazzi, anyone? I was able to check in in the middle of my meal, & I determined that I was satisfied, and did not need to eat all of my lunch.

NatureBox Cranberries Jubilee, Tuna, Peach Chobani, & Cheese/Crackers.

I did enjoy the texture that the trail mix brought to my yogurt. It was pure delight. I remember thinking, this is the best meal I’ve ever had! So much so, I didn’t need the tuna, nor the cheese/crackers combo.

Later on, I tried this exercise with berries. Unfortunately, I wasn’t hungry enough to make it a whole meal. But, I did bring some mindfulness to it. I noticed that the first bite of the raspberry was tart. The second bite was sweet. Really cool!

  1. I’m learning I really need to pay attention to my food more, I definitely am a mindless eater, I notice when I take my time, I don’t need as much food. My favorite lunch would have to be sweet potato or a “everything” salad, where I just throw in an enormous amount of veggies
