Whether you are new to meditation or a seasoned practitioner, having a strong foundation for your meditating is essential to build a consistent practice. Here are my suggestions for how to build your foundation.
By giving thanks, we become more aware of the food we are about to eat. When we are aware, we taste more, get more satisfaction, and often eat less. Let the feelings of gratitude fill you up, and then notice if feeling grateful affects your eating.

Mindfulness is like Election Day, because with mindfulness we get to choose too. We choose where to put our attention. We choose to follow our breath or our thoughts. We choose to eat mindfully or mindlessly.
