Are you struggling with creativity in the kitchen? Do you find yourself mindlessly grazing on comfort foods when you're feeling stressed or anxious? Join Nutritionist Michelle Babb, MS, RD, for tips on how to reclaim the joy in food preparation and eat with intention. Learn how to create a beautiful Mediterranean snack platter that's a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds, and find out how to create a balanced Beauty Bowl with seasonal ingredients.

In Mastering Mindful Eating, Michelle explains how to practice mindful eating for improved health and digestion, your healthiest weight, and a greater sense of calm. Forget counting calories, strict portion control, and restrictive diet plans. Mindful eating lets your body access the nutrients from food and turn on its self-regulating system. It's the sustainable way to shed pounds, maintain your healthiest weight, and ensure optimal digestion. When you build a positive relationship with food, you reduce binge and emotional eating. Included in the book are 30 recipes designed to enhance your introduction to mindful eating by engaging all the senses.
