March's "Mindful Eating" Challenge

QUIZ FOR MARCH: March's Mindful Eating Quiz

Healthy Food

This month's challenge focuses on where, when, how, what and why you are eating.

We want you to be more mindful with your eating throughout the month of March!

Please Choose one of these mindful eating habits to work on for the month of March:

Where: Sit down! Eating should be done in a dedicated space without distraction, ideally at a comfortable table. Avoid eating in front of the TV, at a computer, or in the car.

When: First and most importantly, eat when you are hungry. Most of us do well with a routine, and your body will appreciate knowing that it can expect to be fed!

How: Slowly – enjoy the smell, texture, and taste! Aim to chew for 10-15 seconds per bite.

What: While the food itself may greatly vary, we can all benefit from paying attention to the amounts we eat..

Why: Aim to eat only when you are hungry! We can positively impact our health by simply eating when we are hungry and stopping when we’re full. Don't forget to take the quiz at the end of the month to make sure you receive credit for completing the challenge!
