Savoring My Food

Sunday, June 23, 2013

It is still a little difficult slowing down eating to 20 minutes. Let's see, how many distractions have I been allowing to take my attention away from my food? Television, what is it like to eat without watching Hannibal bite someone's face off.--television off. Computer, I have actually put my food down and went over to the computer to fulfill a thought I had.--computer off. Windows, I love to hear the birds chirp. More than that I love to watch them fly around.--windows closed. Very interesting to actually sit and admire the sight and taste of my food. While concentrating on my food I had not realized that more than 20 minutes had passed.

    I had a boss once that took forever to eat and made an interesting sound when she did eat. I asked her about it. She told me that she was actually sucking the flavor from her food as she ate it. I tried it a few times and found that I enjoyed the flavor of the food much more than just putting it in my mouth and chewing and swallowing it. Great observations on your part. Really something to think about.
