What was I doing when I was the most happy?
The exercise started with: remember a time when you were happy, what were you doing?
Everyone of those questions led me to food...well not just food but eating a meal with others. Oh and good food.
Connections are made over food.
We go to networking lunches, sit down on holidays for family dinners and who can forget the romantic candle light dinner with a loved one.
Gathering around the table, with everyone excitedly talking about their day, their hopes for the future and the food....
I just don't feel the same about yakking in a car, or over the phone, or while hanging at a Starbucks...it's just too boring and empty.
I want to plate some food!
We raised our boys with family meals....very rarely did we eat on the run, even when they were in high school and had schedules jammed packed with stuff.
I loved those meals, even though the food, in retrospect was at times not as healthy as I wish it had been.
I love to go out to dinner with my sons and their girlfriends and sit around the table and talk.
When we go into the city, our day is always planned around where we are going to eat. Without that special meal, I feel like the trip was just not as special.
We plan our visits and look to find healthy food that is served in a interesting atmosphere.
In 2004, less than 28% of the families out there ate dinner together.
If not at dinner, when do you talk? How do you find out about how your kid's school day is going? The latest love interest? The school gossip? Let alone talk about current events? Decide family vacations?
My biggest joy is to make food for people that they will enjoy, that will enhance their health and feelings of wellbeing and to sit around a table and talk......
You Deserve to be Healthy!
