Food: Slowing Down and Savoring
Monday, January 27, 2014
I've been trying to focus on savoring food that I eat.
One of the best examples for me are natural almonds. I always keep them on hand in my car for snacking. However in the past I would mindlessly snack without limiting myself.
Now I count out my 24 almonds for my single ounce and eat each almond by itself, cracking open the almond between my teeth and savoring the creamy, smooth inner flat between the halves and chew each half separately, taking in the flavor and texture.
I've never seen myself make an ounce of almonds last so long! And my satisfaction with that single ounce is SO much greater!
