Where do you eat?
At the table. On your butt. With a plate, knife and fork.
Not in the car. Not at the computer or in front of the TV.
Not on the run out the door.
This is where INTELLIGENCE & EXCELLENCE comes in....
You learn to enjoy the event of eating.
It is very purposed and deliberate.
Sit, give thanks, partake.
With inattentive eating your body does not digest properly.
You have no concept of how much or how fast you are eating, and guaranteed you will overeat
Realize how many people would love to have the privilege you are having at that moment.
Whether its a carrot or a Dorito, your food is a gift.
Take the time and allow yourself to be blessed by your meal.
