    Make Every Meal A Pleasure

    We all eat every day. And by paying a little attention to our
    normal meals we can make them a delightful experience. 

    Here are some simple ideas you may find useful. 

    1. Pay a little extra for the principal element. For breakfast,
      buy great, freshly roasted coffee — and grind it yourself. For
      lunch, pay a little more for salmon salad rather than tuna.
      For dinner, buy free-range poultry or beef. 
    2. Use your best service. Get out and use the China and silverware
      you really like and enjoy. Stop saving it for rare special occasions.
      Make every occasion special by treating it so. 
    3. Listen to good music. Music is as much a part of a meal as
      water is a part of swimming. The only time you can justify
      not having beautiful music playing softly in the background
      while you’re eating is when you are in the mountains or on
      the beach. 
    4. Don’t read. There is a time for reading, but it is never while
      you are eating.
    5. At some point during the meal, take a moment to think
      about how lucky you are to be eating so well.
    6. Eat slowly. Make each bite a pleasure, each meal memorable.

    Take Action: 

    Use some of these ideas with your next meal and make it a
    delightful pleasure.
