Canada’s new food guide looks good: Lots of fruits, veggies, plants, and whole grains.
But what also catches my attention is that it isn’t just about what you’re eating, but also how you eat. Take a look at this excerpt:
Healthy eating is more than the foods you eat. It is also about where, when, why and how you eat.
Be mindful of your eating habits
– Take time to eat
– Notice when you are hungry and when you are full
Cook more often
– Plan what you eat
– Involve others in planning and preparing meals
Enjoy your food
– Culture and food traditions can be a part of healthy eating
Eat meals with others
It’s turning eating into a social, interactive activity – the way healthy eating habits should be. Taking a moment to slow down from the digital pace of life and just enjoy the company from real people is almost a must in maintaining healthy stress levels, healthy relationships, and adding meaning and purpose back into living.
