Theme for the Month: Eating Mindfully
Last weekend, I attended and spoke at the Integrative Medicine Conference in Tulsa, OK. Friend and colleague Jason Stevens, LD, RD, spoke on the topic "Mindful Eating." Mindful eating is paying attention to the way you eat without judgment.
I am convinced nutrition is not just about what we eat, but how we eat. It was thrilling to see a dietitian presenting on this topic at our conference!
In honor of Thanksgiving, I will be focusing on the topic of eating mindfully this month. It will also be the focus of the 306 Phoenix House Monthly Natural Health Gathering this month.
"Savor Your Food: Eat Slowly for Your Health"
Sunday, November 24th
I look forward to sharing this topic with you. I hope you will join us!
