Mindful eating is not a diet or fast fix plan. It is not about giving any one type of food up at all. Think about it as really experiencing the pleasure of the food you are eating. Getting every taste bud in your mouth to enjoy the food you choose to eat. That’s right, the food you CHOOSE to eat. So often with diabetes we are scolded for what food does to our BG levels that we begin to view food as “good” or “bad”. Really food is fuel for your body, in any form you choose to eat. Now, that isn’t to say some foods have more or less nutritional value than others, or that you should live on Snickers bars or Pork rinds! You can choose to eat more mindfully though – and with this you may find a sense of pleasure in what you eat, rather than just wolfing down your next meal. You might find you enjoy food a lot more. Or you might decide, halfway through, that your body has had enough.
