About the Event

On the surface, it may seem like meal planning and mindful eating are incompatible. How can one pre-plan AND practice present moment awareness with meal choices? But the reality is, lack of planning often doesn’t foster satisfying, joyful eating experiences either and can lead to stress and frustration around figuring out how to nourish your body. There is a middle path that exists between totally winging it and rigid control when it comes to making meal plans and that middle path is one of flexible, supportive, and mindful meal planning.

Learning Objectives

  1. Explain how mindful meal planning differentiates from typical approaches to meal planning
  2. Identify the principles of supportive, mindful meal planning
  3. Describe the different ways in which one might approach meal planning to create simple, satisfying, and nourishing meal
