Registered Dietitians have long been encouraging “Mindful Eating”, and the new 2019 Canada’s Food Guide reflects this messaging. Key messages include slowing down to take time to eat, paying attention to your hunger and fullness cues, planning meals/cooking at home, preparing and eating meals with others, enjoying your food and being mindful of your eating habits.
