Healthy eating

by missbabysunshine

I’m having lunch at work right now and came across this article!!

“Meal prep as a family affair not only teaches kids about cooking, it equips them with valuable skills, promoting lifelong health and self-sufficiency. What’s more, eating together strengthens communication and tightens bonds. According to a study by Columbia’s National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, teens who eat with their families five or more times per week claim to enjoy better relationships with their parents and are less likely to drink and do drugs. Not too shabby for a plate of spaghetti.” —By Kristen Swensson and Leigh Angel, Special to CNN

I don’t have kids yet but sitting down at home for dinner with my husband at the end of the day is very important time for us. We chat about our day and sometimes it’s about nothing but it’s a routine yet it’s SO important. EVERYONE’s busy with something these days in our modern society, so let’s just all take an hour… if not, 20min.! to eat together with someone you care about today and have conversation! If not dinner, do breakfast! If you are single living on your own, invite a good friend over for a dinner together! Let’s stop making excuses to spend precious time with people you love. Our life is too short to let that slip by~! Have a great weekend everyone. 🙂
