What if there was a way to slow down and enjoy what we eat? I would love that. Sometimes, when I’m hungry, I inhale my food. I look at my empty plate and think, “When did that happen?”
You might have heard about mindful eating. It means savoring each bite by setting down your fork to chew your food and really taste it. That would be swell, but when I think about what I eat, it hardly deserves the time.
- A piece of toast with coffee.
- Granola, fruit and yogurt between 9:00 and 10:00.
- A half sandwich and soup for lunch.
- Something cooked quickly for dinner or leftovers. I love using the crock pot and made enough beef stew last night for a family of eight.
So this morning, I ate a bowl of cereal – I have no idea what kind – and had an AHA moment.
