Healthy Eating Habits
Saturday, June 18, 2011
This is taken from a flyer my doctor gave me: Eat only when hungry and don't overeat. Do not eat when angry or emotionally upset. Eat in a pleasant atmosphere; do not read while eating or watch upsetting news. A blessing, prayer or silent contemplation before eating improves digestion, assimilation and well being on all levels. Chew your food well, especially starches, nuts and seeds. Chew them into a powder before swallowing. Remember that digestion begins in the mouth with saliva. Do not eat within 3-4 hours of going to bed. An occasional fruit evening snack may be acceptable.
