Taking time to be mindful to enjoy the flavors, traditions, and social experiences that food brings to our lives is another important part. Healthy food choices nourish and strengthen our bodies but enjoying those foods with friends and family contributes to overall good health. Some tips on ‘Savoring the Flavor of Eating Right’ :
- Eat together as a family. Family meals contribute not only to healthier eating but have also been shown to strengthen family relationships.
- Turn off the TV and electronics when sitting down for a meal. Take time to focus on your meal and enjoy the food. You may find you eat less.
- Instead of using salt to add flavor, liven up foods with spices and herbs.
