Mindful Eating CityEast College

Course Outline

Would you like to change your relationship with food? Change your relationship with food with our Mindful Eating course! Use mindful eating exercises to cultivate your mindful eating habits and food mindset.

Mindful eating uses mindfulness practices to make food choices from a place of nurturing and nourishment, rather than regret, guilt and blame. Developing a mindful eating mindset is a way to achieve acceptance, slow things down, awaken our senses, notice our food and appreciate it for its nourishment, colour, texture and smell.

Mindful eating offers an opportunity to change your relationship with food as you learn how to reset your button on food choices, without blame or attributing right or wrong. Most importantly mindful eating is a chance to step off the diet mentality treadmill to a path of exploration and compassion. During our mindful eating course, you will explore various mindful eating exercises so that you can experience something that might resonate with you as a do-able strategy.
