Healthy Ingredients are NO Excuse

I believe in eating healthy, especially organic food when it's on sale at the grocery store (gotta stay within budget). However, healthy ingredients are NO excuse to forget your table manners.

Let's just review a few of the basics (sometimes we all need a refresher):
  • Take small bites so you don't look like a cow chewing its cud
  • Cut only one or two pieces of food at a time. It's only acceptable to cut up all the food on your plate if you're 5 years old or younger.
  • Chew with your mouth closed, PLEASE!
  • Wait until you've swallowed your food before you take a drink. Nothing will kill your appetite faster than seeing backwash floating in someones water.
  • Don't talk with your mouth full, wait until you swallow. This goes back to tip #1...if you take smaller bites you won't have this problem.
