When I Eat.
Cuando Como.
By Andrew Spreng

I decide to wash my hands before I eat.
Yo decido a lavar mis manos antes de que me coma.

I set a goal to eat breakfast every morning.
Me he fijado una meta de comer el desayuno todos mañanas.

When I am stressed, I try to eat vegetables because they are healthy.
Cuando estoy estresado, yo trate de comer verduras porque son saludables.

I communicate with others to tell them how important it is to eat a balanced meal.
Me comunico con los demás para decirles lo importante que es comer una comida equilibrada.

I set a goal to limit the fast food I eat.
Me he fijado una meta de limitar la comida rápida me coma.

I communicate with my parents to buy more fruits and vegetables, rather then chips and cookies.
Me comunico con mis padres a comprar más frutas y verduras, en lugar de patats fritas y galletas.

I tell my friends that we cannot share food because we can pass germs and get sick.
Yo les digo a mis amigos que no podemos compartir comida porque podemos pasar los gérmenes y enfermarse.

I decide to use my spoon instead of my fingers while eating my oatmeal.
Me decido a utilizar mi cuchara en lugar de mis dedos mientras come mi avena.

I practice all my Habits of Mind skills when I eat healthy:
Decision Making
Goal Setting
Stress Management
Conflict Resolution
Communication
