The 21-Day Mindful Eating Challenge allows you to tune into your own body’s wisdom - becoming attuned to all of your senses while eating. Truly enjoying your meal is about being present for it. Each day includes a simple exercise to learn to bring more mindfulness to the dinner table through the awareness of the different tastes, smells, sights, thoughts and feelings that happen while eating.
In this Challenge, you’ll learn to pay attention to your senses while eating, eat less while feeling satisfied, experience more pleasure from the food that you do eat, bring attention and awareness to your current eating habits and how to challenge them.

Hi! I’m Jenna. A born-and-raised farm girl with nothing more than a passion and a dream to help others find freedom from food, as an Emotional Eating Coach. Using food as comfort has been my fallback my entire life and I have struggled with obesity because of an unhealthy relationship with food. When I graduated university with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 2010, my weight had climbed to 295 pounds. The day I stepped on the scale and saw that number staring back at me was a turning point in my life. I developed the tools to help me get out of my vicious cycle and finally gain my health back. I no longer turned to food for comfort and found other healthy modalities that helped me deal with my severe depression. Through my formal education and experience, I believe nutrient-dense foods are the key to optimal health. Nurturing the body starts with whole food. But I also believe it’s not about the food. How we view food and our relationships towards food is the bigger issue. The harder issue, the issue that people shy away. Keeping the weight off for 5 years isn’t because nutrition became my passion, but because I learned to have a healthy relationship with food.
This course was created for you if you ever just eat.
Maybe it’s snacking on popcorn while you watch a movie, eating lunch at your desk while you’re working, shoving fries in your mouth while you’re driving, scrolling Instagram to see what you missed as you inhale breakfast or the mindless eating that comes with numbing your feelings.
Mindlessness or mindless behaviours are often described as being on autopilot. Habitually going through your day with little thought. And we can do the same with food. Mindless eating is characterized by eating while our minds aren’t present and are under distraction with other demands of our attention.
When we eat mindlessly, we don’t allow our full senses to appreciate the food we’re consuming. And because we aren’t present to the experience of eating, we tend to overeat and eat past the feeling of fullness.
Have you ever eaten a whole bag of chips and then said things like “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing?”
I’m going to guess that the experience has happened on more than one occasion for many of you AND that you were probably engrossed in something else entirely while eating said bag of chips (been there).
That is mindless eating.
