Make Eating an Event

First, savor your food, eat slowly, 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, if 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 one. 

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!

If you never cooked, here is a great site to get you started with – Eatwell 101 – Start Cooking at Home

    You have wonderful thoughts and ideas. We just bought a Breville 900-the smart Oven Air Fryer. I think you and Christy would enjoy one. Check it out👍🏻

      Thanks we have the old one, and love it. It is perfect for cooking for two, you can do so many things with it, but not air fry. Have you used it to air fry? We normally take our air fryer when we go away for the winter, but a oven that could do both would be even better. Thanks Again
