Can you eat yourself happy? | Slow Food Movement | Scoop.it
Are there any superfoods that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face?
Annalise Glass's insight:

This is a great article outlining the reasons why taking the time to cook and eat together is good not only for nutrition but also for mental and emotional health. Mark Salter, a consultant psychiatrist in Hackney, London, highlights that because cooking is an established occupational therapy for depression. “The preparing, sharing and consuming of food is so precious,” he says, “because it lies slap at the heart of what it means to be human – to love, to relate, to plan, to feed, to enjoy and to share.” 

 

Definitely a great aspect of embracing a slow food approach to living!!

An awesome little film that explains further the slow food movement in small towns in Chinati (where slow food originated). This film talks about the essence of slow food, with small-scale producers sharing their stories about how the movement has helped to give visibility to their produce.

Maggie Hu’s insight:

The author as a foreigner introduces the Slow Food movement in the fastest growing economy of China. Nowadays, China is dominated by stories of rapid growth and lightening-speed developments in the Western media. As for me, I agree with this but the development also challenge us through lifestyle changes or the culture differences. Chinese traditional food culture needs people to eat local, eat slow and eat seasonally, but the rapid pace of modern life has changed the Chinese food culture. It is especially not easy to undertake the Slow Food Movement in the big cities, such as Beijing and Shanghai. However, the problems of food have pushed Chinese to renew the traditional food culture. Slow Food China chapter was organized in Shanghai and Beijing and they have helped people to obtain good, clean and fair food.

Apple guru kept his kids away from iPads - Technology - NZ Herald News

Apple guru kept his kids away from iPads - Technology - NZ Herald News | Slow Food Movement | Scoop.it
He may have been dubbed the master evangelist of the digital age, but even the late Steve Jobs worried about the effect technology has on children. - New Zealand Herald
Annalise Glass's insight:

From a world leader of the technology movement an interesting insight into the fact that within Steve Job's household technology was limited and "every evening Steve made a point of having dinner at the big long table in their kitchen, discussing books and history and a variety of things." It's not always necessarily about the large scale changes but instead the small adaptions of a slow food movement that can bring people  together around the love of food and sharing life. 

 

It's one step at a time - maybe ditching the focus on technology and installing the practice of talking and eating around a dinner table is your next step to embracing a fuller life.
