- Savor your food, eat slowing, take in the aroma. Stop thinking about food as fuel. Food and dinning together is life.
If you don’t know how to cook, this is a wonderful time to learn. Cooking is a step-by-step process. Yes, some recipes are complex, it you see one you like, but it is complex; avoid it; pick a simpler recipe. But my advice is to learn to cook your own food and do it with a loved ones.
Last, if you’re the type of person that is accustomed to having your meals prepared for you, STOP! If you’re a caregiver and you have always cooked for the other person – STOP! Enjoy preparing the meal together, split the work. Talk, nibble and use all your senses!
