Don’t eat in a rush! It may help you make that next appointment or commitment, but it can cost you in the long run. Researchers at the University of Rhode Island tested this by instructing their participants to eat a large plate of pasta quickly.  Those who did, consumed 646 calories in nine minutes! Those who ate slowly consumed only 579 calories in 29 minutes.   That’s 67 calories less, and it only took them an extra 20 minutes.  Walking on the treadmill for about 20 minutes you burn around 67 calories.  Imagine, you eat slowly for 20 extra minutes and you can skip that extra cardio at the gym (that’s at least one way of looking at it.) Eating hastily has also long been associated with indigestion and heartburn.

Eating quickly is not part of sustainable lifestyle. I was not raised to live that way. My parents are very old school and taught us well. We grew up always having our main meals together at the dining table as a family…every single day we would all enjoy breakfast before school, lunch after school (where we got to share our days and converse) and a light dinner before going to bed. We have this thing in Latin America called the “sobre mesa”, where families or friends chill out around the dinner table after finishing a meal, talking for long stretches, sometimes even hours, about various topics. Not only did your family/friends get to bond and share your lives, but also you digested properly. You gave your body a chance to relax and recover.

So slow down and enjoy your meals for a little longer, you’ll be glad you did.  It’s the perfect mix… healthy and delicious Paleo Diet recipes mixed with better digestion = a healthier life and body!  However, if you are in a rush, you can enjoy these high protein, organic Paleo Bison Egg Muffins!  They are a simple and healthy Paleo snack for those of you on the go!
