I planned on only writing one post for National Nutrition Month. But then I had something else I wanted to talk about and figured this was a perfect time to share.
The importance of eating with others.
One big change for me after I moved away from home and then out of the dorms was eating by myself at the kitchen table. Growing up we had dinner with my whole family almost every night. I didn’t realize how important this was when I was a kid but I do now. Dinner is a time we can talk, catch up, laugh and listen to stories. Or sometimes it is just quiet, but we were all still together hanging out.
Sometimes I find myself turning on music or the TV on for something to do during dinner and then I forget to enjoy what I’m eating, like I talked about in my last post.
I love to cook and share with others. I always find myself making muffins, brownies, soup, bread, etc to bring to dinner with friends or family. I love it! And I do it to show people I care and appreciate that we are doing something together.
I try to make plans to make dinner or go out with friends and family as much as possible.
So we can talk, catch up, laugh and listen to stories.
