Today, in the middle of all the wonderful (and sometimes stressful!) hustle and bustle of this season, we challenge you to keep it simple and connected around your family-centered dinner table! Here are our three 'rules' for a healthy, happy, and engaging meal, whether you are eating with long-lost uncles or your best friends from the apartment downstairs.
1) Try for a no-phone zone: We know this is CRAZY challenging, but have phones around for photos of all your friends and delicious edible creations only - stay connected in the moment!
2) Take your time: We spend hours cooking meals, and then we all rush through them. Meals are more than just food - so savor every minute of the casseroles AND the conversations.
3) Have meaningful, interesting conversations: Meals are a great time to learn about the people in our lives, so why not ask new questions and learn new things? We have attached below a downloadable list of questions that are super easy to cut out, place on people's plates, and enjoy a stress-free connected meal.
Sending you wonderful wishes for delicious dinners throughout the rest of this season - and please let us know how your meaningful conversations go!
