So now that I'm back at work, I get together with a few of my fav peeps, which also happen to be smokin' hot Mumas with multiple kids (ra-spect), and eat The Goods (obviously). This awesome "power-hour" is often full of mad love, swapping current stories and pics of the little ones, strategizing on how we will take over the world and laughing probably louder than we should. But it got me thinking about the power of eating together. It's pretty magical stuff. I'm talking about taking a moment to enjoy your food with someone. I understand that sometimes there is simply not enough time to take the proverbial hour for lunch but you can spare at least a moment. Allow yourself to enjoy one of life's basic necessities. Not only does taking that break actually make you more productive but having even a quick catch-up convo with a workmate/pod-mate/like minded food-mate while eating will foster feelings of security, belonging, well-being and even love. Great food is awesome, eating it with great people is even more awesome. Double rainbows - mind-blowing.
