Slow down and savor your food and life
As I am on a journey of weight loss and good health. One tip I have learned is to Slow down and enjoy life. We live in such a hurried world, running all about in a microwave "grab and go" society. My father as a boy scout leader made an interesting observation. The boys had gone out for a campout. They had each brought a tin foil dinner to cook in the fire. My father noticed that some of the boys were very impatient while waiting for the dinners to cook. He related to me that he sensed that these boys were the ones that lived in a home where the microwave was a main source of food. He said it was about two minutes and they were ready to eat. This was about 10 -12 years ago. I wonder what he would find nowdays. Do we ourselves exist where the microwave provides a majority of our food at home? Is takeout food our best freind? I am slowing down and cooking not only on weekends, but all the time. My body has been happier these last few weeks as I have made a move to pay attention to it. When we slow down our eating the body has time to respond to the food we are putting in. We are healthier today because I chose to slow down and pay attention. I want my family and I to be healthy in body and mind. I am creating my world according to those things. Family time together at meals is something that I am begining to value. It is becoming a great part of life.
