Given how hectic our daily life can be, it’s no big surprise that we often squeeze a bit more work into our work lunch breaks. Then, when we’re at home, our meals are often accompanied with whatever is on TV. For most busy people in our fast-paced modern world, it’s unusual for mealtimes are to be given the importance they deserve. They are rarely upheld and kept clear from distractions. This takes away the real pleasure of enjoying eating our meals in a healthy, relaxed manner.
