Eating mindfully is about maintaining in-the-moment awareness of what you ingest. It’s about observing (not judging) the food and drink you choose to consume while noticing how the food makes you feel. Mindful eating allows us to fully engage in the signals that the body sends to the brain about taste and satiety.
Mindful Nutrition Counselling helps people discover intolerances, understand emotional eating and manage weight.

While many aspects of gluten free cooking come down to label reading there are parts that require a bit of science.
