Stressed? Try slow food

Want more time for the good things in life? Slow down your dinner. It's a paradox, but it works.

So say the good people at Slow Food. They encourage you to spend more time enjoying that seafood, preferably caught locally and shared with others. Sounds nice, but who knew it would work as an antidote to Fast Life (a too-fast world)?

Sustainability is a key part of slow food. Protecting the rich variety and taste of our favorite fish and shellfish is essential if we want to savor them in the future.

Is slow food a hopeless longing for the past or a smart way to thrive in the future? Who can say? Maybe it's not for everyone, but it might be right for you. If you're like me and you're upset by the decline and loss of some of your favorite seafood, then slow food is worth a look-see.

So slow down, join a convivium, share your favorite seafood with your friends, and see if you find more time to enjoy life.

I found your blog through Sherman's Lagoon.
I teach a course on ocean management and post regularly on my blog as well.

I get "slow food" every time I go out for dinner here. Also slow drinks, slow being served, and slow bringing the check.

Tipping is frowned upon though, so I guess it all evens out ...
