Day# 23 Savoring

I am truly amazed how hard it is for me to focus on my food. I have always said I don't care what it is, "I'll eat anything except coconut"!
Turns out that was my problem because I didn't really taste the flavors in most things, I just ate them.
Another way to increase awareness of food is to use the concept of savoyring!
This is an idea to take a piece of candy, like an Andes mint or a small chocolate candy and eat it bit by bit savoring each tiny bite.
Or a sliver of cheesecake, pasta or green beans work also as long as you eat tiny bites, savoring each one and really think about how it tastes.
And so the lessons continue! emoticon

Have a great day! emoticon

    I tend to lose track too and when I look back, the food is gone and where was I? Savoring each bite is a great idea! THANKS!!!

    Since tracking my food i have been savoring the foods much more. I refuse to spend my calories on foods and treats i dont truly enjoy. Great side effect of being more conscious what goes in my mouth. Great blog!!!

    I tend to be a fast eater, so to practice savoring is a great effort for me.
    When I take the time to savor, it really does improve my satisfaction level - even with foods that I think I don't like!
