September Updates + Mindful Eating Guide

September is one of my favorite months. It’s in-between summer and fall, so there are warm days and brisk fall days. The leaves start to change, the leaf-peepers come to check out the gorgeous fall foliage in Vermont. With my long commute, I’ve seen the leaves change from week-to-week. It really is incredible.

A new season brings new local, seasonal produce as well. This month, I went apple picking, and I was thrilled when I saw the first winter squash popping up at the farmer’s market. There’s so many varieties of both apples and squash to try it, but my favorites are honeycrisp and gala apples and kabocha squash!

On dock for Mindful Meals next is a Mindful Eating Guide. I’m working on it now, but I’ll keep you updated on when it will be available and what will be included in it. The guide will include:

  • Reasons to eat mindfully
  • Research behind mindful eating
  • Who can benefit from mindful eating (Hint: everyone!)
  • Mindful eating exercises to practice (similar to Mindful Meals Tips)
  • Worksheets and journal prompts for mindful eating practice
  • Resources – Books, blogs, and more that promote mindful eating

    Hi Lauren! Just had to say “hi” and post my comment here. I’m happy to have found your blog today, and read about your mindful eating philosophy, which I completely resonate with. Eating is such an integrated part of our being, starting before we were born. I enjoy those links too… they are exactly what I would be interested to read! :) Beautiful pictures. What a gorgeous place you live in Vermont!
