I just found out Jan Chozen Bays has published a book in 2009 titled "Mindful Eating" at Shambhala. My public library owns many copies. I also found out she is a pediatrician and Zen teacher.

Thanks for posting this, Evelyn!

"Mindful eating is a practice that engages all parts of us our body, our heart, and our mind in choosing, preparing, and eating food. It immerses us in the colors, textures, scents, tastes, and even sounds of drinking and eating. It allows us to be curious and even playful as we investigate our responses to food and our inner cues to hunger and satisfaction.

Mindful eating is not based on anxiety about the future but directed by the actual choices that are in front of you and by your direct experiences of health while eating and drinking. Mindful eating replaces self-criticism with self-nurturing. It replaces shame with respect for your own inner wisdom."

- Jan Chozen Bays, "Mindful Eating" (Tricycle Magazine, Summer 2009)
