Savor the Flavor

 Savor Book Cover How to Eat Cover

March is National Nutrition Month and this year the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has chosen the theme “Savor the Flavor of Eating Right”. Use this month to practice savoring the flavor of everything you eat and drink. Slow down the pace of your meals whenever possible and learn to really taste every bite. Savor the act of preparing your food. Think about all that is involved in getting the food you eat to your table.

According to Merriam Webster the definition of savor is “to enjoy the taste or smell of something for as long as possible.z’

Practicing mindfulness during your meals and snacks can help you to not only savor the taste of the food you are eating, but help you eat more slowly and experience more satisfaction with a smaller amount of food. Savoring your food can be a key component of managing your weight.

To get started you might want to read Thich Nhat Hanh’s “How to Eat” (pocket sized 125 pages) and then  the more comprehensive “Savor: Mindful Eating, Mindful Life”. Both of these small volumes are packed with sensible advise on eating and living more mindfully. The author presents a mindfulness perspective on weight control and well-being, a meditation on eating an apple and lots more.

Happy National Nutrition Month!

Happy mindful eating!
