Purposeful Eating!

Make eating purposeful, not mindless. Before you put food in your mouth, peel it, unwrap it, move it around, savor it, engage it, smell it, delight in it, and keep your mind fixed on the quality, not the quantity of the food. Engage all of the senses in the pleasure of nourishing your body. Nourishment is a requirement. How little of us dieters think of it as a requirement to live. We fell into bondage of food and now we are terrified to enjoy this simple and necessary pleasure. We knew excess and we are afraid to recall the times as a toddler where meals meant nourishment and new experiences. Don't eat to get a stuffed feeling or an emotional high. Eat to fulfill your God-given responsibility of fueling the body for each day's journey. Stop the mindless, emotional eating and learn what God meant a meal to be--intimacy with the Creator who has given you abundant variety to meet your physical daily needs of nourishment. Explore this possibility of viewing food as God's design for keeping you a lean, mean, pleasing machine.

Have a blessed day! http://www.gracetoday.com
