My friend, Juan — the facilities supervisor at my gym — is originally from Mexico.
Juan doesn’t always speak the best English.
This is how he just described going home for lunch:
“I go to make my stomach and my mind happy.”
And while I did just say his English isn’t always perfect, this isn’t one of those times.
What a wonderful way to look at eating.
Now excuse me while I, too, go to make my stomach and my mind happy.
From the comments:
Mauro: The Spanish saying which your friend Juan loosely translated into English is, “¡Barriga llena, corazón contento!” — When your belly is full your heart is also happy!
