Eating on the run is a common eating method for many Americans. But eating slowly may be better for your health. Enjoying food should be a slow process.
Here are some tips on how to slow down and enjoy your food…
- look at your food
- smell your food
- taste your food
- slowly chew your food
- eat from a plate
- sit at a table
Eating on the run deprives you of enjoying food and having fun with your food. The faster we eat the more we eat. Focusing on what you eat makes it easier to sense when you are full and to stop eating before you overeat. Try eating slowly for enjoyment and your health.
March 23: Beets
Santa Maria Babe Golden and Red Beets from Babe Farms were featured at Vintage High. The colors matched the school colors in a salad tossed together with Fresh mint and Balsamic Vinegar. Featured at the offering bar and as tastings at the display table, it was well received. Students said it was like going to Costco and trying something new.
