Simple Healthy Tips For Mealtime

Did you know, it’s important to spend a little time on the presentation of your meal?
You are more likely to enjoy a meal if it’s visually appealing as well as tasty.

A simple meal of meatloaf and mashed potatoes can go from a hum drum look to a magnificent display by simply cooking your meat loaf in a bundt style stone or pan. Once the meat loaf is finished, dump onto a platter or in large round bowl, putting your mashed potatoes in the center. You could top the potatoes if you wish with a sprig of parsley or cilantra to add color.

Make every meal an occasion. Set the table. Use the real deal, not paper plates. Eat with your family. Sit down with them and eat together. Give yourself the opportunity to enjoy your food without distractions like television. At the family meal, you can truly connect with members of your family and hear about their day by being truly present with them.

You are less likely to overeat if you eat slowly and savour every mouthful. As you savour every mouthful of the meal, listen and savour every moment of sharing by the family during this special time together.

Bringing the family back to the table should be a goal for each of us. Meals at home are normally healthier, eaten in less of a hurry, and the reconnection of families. “priceless”!
