Wagamama x Mind
Wagamama believe in nourishing the body and soul.
Throughout January and February they are partnering with Mind to raise awareness of mental health...
Mindfulness is a technique that people can use to help manage their mental health, or to simply gain more enjoyment from life. It's about making an effort to give your full attention to the present moment; what's happening in your body, mind and surroundings.
Mindful eating is all about learning to pay more attention to the food we eat and how we eat it. It's about being aware of how the food we choose to eat affects our bodies, minds and feelings. Paying attention to what you're eating and appreciating it's appearance, texture, colour and taste. Good food should satisfy all of the senses.
"The way we eat animates our spirit. providing not only sustenance for the body but nourishment for the soul" - way of the noodle.

Positive Juice Recipe
Wagamama's blend of pineapple, apple, lime, spinach and cucumber is 100% raw and packed with vitamins and antioxidants (as well as tasting great!)
- Pineapple delivers a dose of serotonin, a mood-enhancer that also encourages good-quality sleep
- Apple isn’t just full of fibre and antioxidants; it contains stress-fighting quercetin
- As well as waking up your tastebuds, lime battles fatigue with vitamin c
- Iron-rich spinach moves oxygen around your body, so you feel strong and motivated
- Cucumber’s vitamin b is energising + stops you from feeling sleepy
Wagamama make lots of other fresh juices; squeezed, pulped and poured fresh to order to help you think and drink positive.
Positive Juice Donation
Wagamama will be donating 25p to mind for every positive juice sold from 27 December to 6 March. If you would like to donate to Mind yourself, please click the link here: donate here
Wagamama will be hosting mindful Mondays at noodlelab every Monday throughout January. To practice mindful eating we will be enjoying our dishes wearing noise cancelling headphones. The idea is to place a focus on the food by reducing distraction.
