    LAS 8 VENTAJAS DE COMPRAR A GRANEL 
    Acostumbrarse a comprar a granel te reporta más beneficios de los que seguramente imaginas:
    *Es más ecológico, ya que no se generan residuos plásticos. Permite comprar la cantidad justa que se necesita, con lo que se tira menos comida y varía más la dieta.
    *La compra es más responsable y menos impulsiva, sin caer en las trampas de la publicidad, el packaging y el marketing.
    *Comes mejor, ya que comprar a granel lleva a una alimentación más consciente en la que uno decide qué come y por qué.
    *Te sale más barato, porque compras solo la cantidad que necesitas, gastas menos y además es de mejor calidad.
    *Ganas en salud. Al ser productos de calidad, la inversión se recupera en salud y en menos gastos médicos.
    *Ves lo que comes. El producto se ve al natural, sin envoltorios.
    *Facilita la proximidad con los dependientes y entre los clientes, que comparten conocimientos y crean vínculos.
    *Permite comprar con libertad y recuperar soberanía alimentaria.

    If mindful eating is a new concept for you, start gradually. Eat one meal a day or week in a slower, more attentive manner. Here are some tips that may help you get started:

    -Set your kitchen timer to 20 minutes, and take that time to eat a normal-sized meal.
    -Try eating with your non-dominant hand; if you’re a righty, hold your fork in your left hand when lifting food to your mouth.
    -Use chopsticks if you don’t normally use them.
    -Eat silently for five minutes, thinking about what it took to produce that meal, from the sun’s rays to the farmer to the grocer to the cook.
    -Take small bites and chew well.
    -Before opening the fridge or cabinet, take a breath and ask yourself, “Am I really hungry?” Do something else, like reading or going on a short walk.
