Our Mindful Snacking Movement

Mind·​ful Eat·​ingˈmīn(d)-fəlˈē-tiŋ

"Mindful eating is maintaining an in-the-moment awareness of the food and drink you put into your body, observing rather than judging how the food makes you feel and the signals your body sends about taste, satisfaction, and fullness."

Mindful eating is not about being perfect, eating the right things, or allowing yourself to only eat certain foods.

It is the in-the-moment awareness of the food you eat and drink, acknowledging rather than judging how food makes you feel.

As registered dietitians, we find that our clients’ eating habits are more often than not, influenced by their relationship with food, how in tune they are with what they eat, and their hunger signals. With busy lifestyles, many of us rush one of the most important and overlooked routines: eating. How many times have you caught yourself eating while commuting, in front of a computer screen or watching TV? When put in these environments, it's much too easy to eat and snack mindlessly, eating just to eat regardless of whether we’re still hungry or not. Mindfulness encourages us to remove those distractions and sit uninterrupted with our food. In doing so, we begin to take our time over food. We start to savour flavours, aromas, and textures. We reconnect with our senses.

How our Chocolate Promotes Mindful Eating

Our Bean Bark chocolate is unlike any other chocolate snacks or bars you’ve had. Together with the satisfying crunch of the bean-based dark chocolate, you'll experience a perfect texture combination with the chewy, sweet and tangy fruit pieces. This satisfying snack requires you to slow down, chew…and by doing that, you’re letting the chocolate melt on your tongue, coating your tastebuds with flavours of cocoa. Combined with the satiating property of beans, our chocolate allows you to feel satisfied faster, and feel full for longer- it’s perfect for snacking. Most likely, you’ll find yourself being satisfied with less chocolate than you think.
