As the United States gears up for Thanksgiving, many people are starting to think about food. Food provides us the energy for living. It is important to consider eating in healthy ways. Our diets need to have a balance of nutrition and may be affected by allergies, diagnoses and medications. Eating mind fully (thinking about, enjoying the tastes and smells of eating) rather than without thought (eating while watching a movie and not thinking about taste, your fullness).
Foods show up in lots of songs. What are your favorites?
