  2. Make your bowl or plate a canvas of colour from nature. Always include fruit and/or veg.
  3. Eat mindfully. How we eat is as important as what we eat.
  4. Eat slowly, with presence, and savouring the fl avours and textures of each mouthful. Eating with a sense of gratitude is also important.
  5. Avoid sugar or fast-releasing ingredients, such as high-GI carbohydrates. Feed your soul as well as your body. Breakfast is a good time to set your daily intention(s).
