As the festive season kicks in, no doubt most of us will end up eating and drinking a bit more than usual.
Some good advice I try to follow is don't eat and run, but carve out enough time in your day to sit down and savour your meal one bite at a time.
Enjoy eating with family or friends, or eating alone with some relaxing music maybe? Eat your food slowly and chew each bite completely to facilitate proper digestion.
Slowing down your eating connects you with the global "slow food" movement, which promotes growing your own, buying locally, preparing meals from scratch, eating in a relaxed, celebratory environment, and generally deepening your appreciation of the entire experience of eating, instead of just slamming your taste buds with the instant gratification of sweet or greasy processed foods.
