Whatever you are eating, put it down and read this book!
Technology and innovation are rapidly changing every aspect of our relationship with food. Sears provides an impressively insightful and factual account of this transformation and its impact on our daily lives. While we can do little to assuage this macro trend, her advice provides a fantastic, pragmatic start to reconnecting with who we are and how we can best nourish ourselves.

Mind to Mouth is the perfect, non-judgmental guide to getting in touch with all of your gastronomic senses.

Great book! I hadn’t considered mindfulness in eating before. As someone who rarely visits a grocery store and uses a delivery meal-cooking service, I know what it’s like to want to enjoy food more but not have the time to invest in it! Now, when I’m grabbing a quick lunch with friends, dining out, or cooking at home, I taste the spices and appreciate the origin of the meal — and I’ve become more open to trying new foods.

Mind to Mouth is that rare find in the self-help genre.

It informs, provides practical advice and actually empowers you to feel good about your choices!  Most of us eat 3X a day, 365 days a year, but many of us consume more food and enjoy it less than we want to. Heather explains how being conscious about food before and during mealtimes can ultimately add joy to your day, help you save time and money, and let go of the guilt!

Funny enough I was just eating a poke bowl while nursing my 4 week old and trying not to spill on her head and thinking about this book. Luckily because of my mindfulness practice I stopped, took a deep breath and realized I’d enjoy my $15 poke bowl if I ate it after finishing nursing when I could savor it a little more.
