Have fun with food!

Eating should have a large place in the enjoyment and pleasure of live! (Which does not mean to use food as a substitute for pleasure - more on that in another article)

Having fun eating, yes, playing with your food is a great way to bring back the smile into what should always have been a pleasurable experience - nourishing your body and senses.

Here are a few ways to bring fun to the table:

1. Eat outside - your porch, your balcony, or a park. Have a picnic.

2. Eat with people that make your feel good about yourself - people that accept you as you are now.

3. Try something new!
Buy something at the store, that you never bought before (as long as it is considered healthy), such as a new fruit, or a different whole-grain cereal. You will find some real treasures just by stepping out of your usual comfort zone.

4. Make a kitchen sink soup!
Put together a variety of vegetables, some stock, and add a small amount of lean beef or smoked, lean sausage, and you have yourself a nutritious dinner or lunch. The possibilities for combinations are endless.

5 Have a food fight! (You might want to take that outside, to the back yard!)

Have a wonderful day!
