Take Charge of Eating Tip #32

Our last tip!! I hope you have enjoyed taking charge of your eating with me. I sure have learned a lot, and I plan to go back through these a number of times, so I can continue to grow on my journey to better health. 
#32 -Food is one of God's ways of loving and nurturing us. We make ourselves even more mindful of this when we give thanks!

How many of you give thanks before or after you eat? In our family, we always say thanks before our meals. The prayer we use is, "Thank you, Jesus, for this food. You are loving, kind and good." Keep in mind, we are using this prayer with a 2 and 4 year old, so we keep it short and to the point, but I think it is still a good prayer.

Whether you make up a new prayer at each of your meals or say the same one, it is very important to be grateful for all you have and to realize that the food you are eating is a gift from a loving God who takes great care of you.

What a beautiful way to end our Take Charge of Eating journey. With thankfulness.
