We are what we eat. The food which we consume builds our body, muscles, brain, organs. The quality is important but also the way we eat. In this crazy world we are all guilty of eating in a rush, fast. It is cool to be busy and multitasking gives us a false sense of time saving. But there is a price.   Our experience is dwarfed, we miss important details, flavours. Our body has no time to digest. This creates a void which we try to fill with even more ‘fast food’. We end up unsatisfied, hungry and fat.
