I am blessed with delightful friends with whom I truly enjoy spending time. We can find a reason to gather and celebrate pretty much anything. Thankfully, the Super Bowl is coming up – a perfect time to get together and enjoy food, friends and fellowship.
I remember first learning about Kentucky History in Mrs. Warnick’s 4th grade class. She was a Civil War buff and dressed up as a pioneer woman when we discussed that period in Kentucky’s history. She and her husband would participate in different Civil War reenactments in various locations.
I remember being fascinated that a President was born in Kentucky and wondered where and what kind of town Hodgenville must be to raise such an amazing man like Abraham Lincoln.
One of the most common New Year’s resolutions we make is to lose weight. Mindful eating means you eat slowly and become more aware of when you become full, which prevents overeating.
When we eat too fast our body doesn’t have enough time to send signals to the brain to tell us that we are full. It takes 20 minutes for food to reach the first part of the small intestine after its ingested. At this point our bodies send the “full” signals to the brain to stop eating.
