Savor the Flavor
Food keeps you alive, provides fuel to help you thrive and fight disease.
But, says registered dietitian and group spokesperson Kristen Gradney, food is also a source of pleasure. Healthy foods bring happiness!
PLUS--family meals promote healthier eating and strengthen family relationships.
Food has color, texture and of course great taste. Eat slowly. Savor each bite.
Try not to multitask--say working while eating or watching TV.
If you want to deepen your relationship with food--instead of making it your enemy--you could consult a registered dietitian.
Dietitians can separate facts from fads, too. If you are, for example, eliminating all carbs, a dietitian can tell you why this is not a great idea.
Or eating all fats and meats--just this week, a study came out questioning the so-called Paleo Diet.
Sooo..what's for lunch?
