In the Reboot Your Belly challenge today I was encouraged to eat slower. The article suggests we should take at least 20 to 30 minutes to consume our meal. The meal should be away from the TV, computer , etc.
I was running errands today and dashed in Subway to get my favorite turkey breast on whole wheat sandwich and needed to eat quickly to make another appointment. After taking the first bite I thought about the challenge for today and talked myself into slowing down the eating process. I was only one minute late for the appointment and according to the challenge article I helped my body by chewing food longer. Having the particles of food smaller our bodies can digest the food easier and get the good nutrients out . I was able to remember this as I ate my salad at dinner and now I will rest better tonight knowing I met the challenge. I do hope to remember to eat slower from now on. I seldom ever have indigestion but the article suggested that anyone who has Gerd should try this to keep indigestion from happening.
So, eat healthy and take it slower!
