Grateful for Mindful Eating

With Thanksgiving literally around the corner, we are fast approaching the holiday season. Typically, in the United States, the season starts with Thanksgiving and goes through New Year’s Eve.  And, as you know, the holiday season is filled with love, joy, giving, sharing, family, friends, and fun!
