Healthy diet foods

Healthy food is all that is required to maintain the health of a human being. You can beat quite a number of medical conditions by eating right and exercising regularly. Many foods are medicinal, and are the fuel on which we run our bodies. This is a process of eating with awareness which is very important, and called meditative eating or mindful eating.

Meditative eating helps you enjoy all the dimensions of food and drink. The colors the fragrances, the textures and of course the taste of food is better appreciated when you eat with awareness. Meditative eating drives away stress, as you are completely consumed by the moment, with no time for worry or tension.
