An extremely enjoyable part of mindful eating is learning to truly taste the food you are eating. I call this Mindful Taste.
Learning to really taste what we are eating and drinking can lead to greater satisfaction, which leads to less desire for food.
We talk a lot about savoring food as we learn about mindful eating. How about savoring your beverages too? If you have been to a winery for a wine-tasting, you know what I mean.
Part of mastering mindful eating is learning to appreciate taste. How something tastes when you first sample. How something tastes after a while. How something tastes when you are hungry and when you are not.
