New York school goes all-vegetarian

New York school goes all-vegetarian | HAPI Eating | Scoop.it
The Active Learning Elementary School in Queens is believed to be one of the first offering an all-vegetarian menu.
HAPILABS's insight:

Sometimes the option to go all vegetarian is all it takes for us to do go vegetarian. If vegetarian meals are made available to us in places where we frequent, it is much more likely for most of us to have the consciousness to pick leaner meals. And giving access to this for people at a very young age, is really a very HAPI development. Kids are made aware of the importance of alternatives to the usual meals served in not as healthy (or health conscious) environment.

Set Up Triggers That Program Yourself to Eat More Mindfully

HAPILABS's insight:

This outlines one way we can get ourselves to pay attention to our food while we are eating. This is important since not only will it allow you to lessen your food intake to a healthier level but it will let you focus more on the experience of eating (which we forget when we're rushing through everything). There are technologies available that can help with this (time yourself with a timer) or better yet, use a more focused technology like the HAPIfork, a fork that vibrates when you're eating too fast to alert you to slow down and enjoy your meal.
