Lose The Fork, Eat With Chopsticks!




I have started keeping a set of chopsticks on hand. I find I eat slower and really enjoy my food when I use chopsticks while eating. I also set the chopsticks down in between bites. This makes you have to pick them back up and reposition them. I love them and there is no rule that says you have to eat only Asian foods with chopsticks.
Pick up a pair at the store, or next time you go out for Asian food, grab an extra pair for another meal time. It's a bit of fun and a bit of a challenge.

  • I once heard a guy say he tried this but with only ONE chopstick. The result was that he ended up eating a lot of shish-kebab!!! - by BEVERLEAF
  • I'm pretty sure I'd starve to death if I had to realy on chopsticks! lol But I agree that it would help, because it would force folks to slow down while they eat. Great idea! - by JULIEM77
  • sounds like a good plan - by KATYBUG48
