Stay Warm – Be Thankful

ThinkClubThinkClubAND REMEMBER what we learned last week at BBC: 
Mindful-eating means food without fear, dining without guilt, eating without remorse. Mindful eating is a learned skill that can help you create a better relationship to your food.
(Don’t you want to relate well to your food?)
The art of mindful eating is the opposite of the multi-tasking meal, where like a post-modern digital teen one eats talks texts watches youtube and gives the amazing impression of being fully aware of a wonderful shared meal together with family friends and whoever else you invite in off the street, that homeless vet that lonely senior citizen the dog or cat that needs a good home. (Thank you Anita Bermann [] for sharing with us your mindful-eating insights and wisdom. Think about it. BBC: We Don’t Exist, But We Do Think About It A Lot.)
