I think this rule rang very clear to me, just last night. I made simple roasted veggie sandwiches for dinner with a friend. The act of deciding which veggies to roast (zucchini, squash, and tomato) and which veggies to sautee (onion and mushrooms), was half the fun! Pesto? Cheese? What eles goes?
Then we built the sammies, each layer of goodness making our mouths water! But the first crunchy, yummy bite?! That was the best part! Discovering that our random dinner provided by friend's gardens? Yup- that's exactly what this rule is all about.
Don't eat for the sake of eating. Eat for the enjoyment of it. Homemade meals are the most satisfying, but store bought meals can be equally enjoyable. Find something about each meal you eat this week that brings a smile to your face. Food tastes a little better this way- I promise! :)
