4 Influencers in Mindful Eating that you should follow now


For those unfamiliar with this concept, mindful eating is the experience of paying full attention to eating. Coming from mindfulness, the practice of maintaining full attention in the present without judging it, mindful eating moves it to nutrition by answering the question: What are the aromas, flavours, the atmosphere that surrounds us, our thoughts and emotions before, during and after our meals?

Although the new generations are more connected with their diet, a large part of the world’s population mains lifestyles focused on efficiency and production, leading them to disconnect with their emotions and their body. So, this form of nutrition proposes to attend and connect with the signals of the organism. Proposes to return to eating intuitively, not because it is “time to eat” or because “the aroma of freshly baked bread came to me”. The idea is to listen again when the body shows us the sensations of hunger and satiety.

That said, we cannot ignore another perspective of this type of diet, that is to be in charge of the type of food that we give to our body. Ultimately, the food we choose is the energy we give to the 30 trillion cells that we are made of. Opting for good quality, live food, free of chemicals and pesticides (that is, organic), produced in a sustainable and regenerative way, is another growing trend that goes completely hand in hand with the concept of mindful eating. The idea is to attend to the signals that our body gives us when it is low on energy, offering it good quality nutrients to keep us active, enjoying the here and now.

If you want to delve deeper into these concepts, learn from workshops, books or simply seek inspiration to get started in this lifestyle, I invite you to pour yourself a glass of Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2020 (a wine that seeks to protect biodiversity and natural resources through of commitments such as the use of renewable energies, GREEN-E® ENERGY) and to browse these entertaining Instagram accounts.
