Mindful eating during the holidays

Learn how a few simple, healthy habits can help improve your pattern of eating and overall relationship with food. We are flooded with messages that make it difficult to know what to eat. Everyone should eat this! No one should eat that! The truth is, we are all unique individuals, which means there is no single “right” way to eat. But we know there are certain foods shown through decades of research to support good health, and that there are certain habits common to healthy eaters. This webinar will focus on how considering your food environment (where you eat), the way you build meals and snacks (what you eat), and the way you approach food (how you eat) can help you to feel your best, starting with what you eat. To get the most out of this webinar, please bring your choice of food (e.g., a piece of fruit, favorite snack,) so you can participate in a mindful eating exercise.
