Looking for an article that best addressed the subject of the French Meal Experience, I came across an article in Psychology Today. It's just a bit long but well worth the read to get a sense of what I'm calling The Disconnect. In this article the subject is raised by addressing what is the difference between Mindful Eating and Mindless Eating. I think this is a very important key not only to developing a heightened personal food culture but, from the article, indicates that there is a real affect not only of what we eat but, the manner in which we eat our food. Maybe, it seems, we need to take a moment, when we eat, and allow ourselves to become fully aware of our eating experience for a variety of reasons. Bon Apetit!
