    Lol! Love it! I hate to admit it, but the only reason I learned how to eat with chopsticks is because they put a Panda Express in our cafeteria. I never thought I’d say it but God Bless fast chinese food.

    lol – I love it! I eat pretty much everything with chopsticks! My fave is peas – yes, I pick one up at a time, too =)

    Hey, that’s how I learned how to use chopsticks too! It might look silly, but hey, it works!

    I use chopsticks the wrong way! I always want to know the right way but I get so frustrated and give up. I can pick up big things like sushi but not small things like rice.

    You sound NOTHING like I imagined!

  9. January 15, 2010 9:16 pm

    you are too cute 🙂 such a fun resolution!

    LOVE this! Please do more videos! 🙂

  11. January 15, 2010 9:26 pm

    Fun video! I get so frustrated trying to learn how to use chopsticks. I have tried the kid kind like you have made there and I still can’t get it. Maybe one day! I even have my own set of pretty purple chopsticks LOL

    Oh my gosh, Heather….you have the cutest voice! haha – I hope that doesn’t sound weird?! Okay, it does…but it’s true. It’s so funny to hear what people sound like, and alas, I am easily entertained.

    I am HORRIBLE with chopsticks. Don’t tell, but when I get sushi to go, I eat it at home with a fork. 🙂

  17. January 15, 2010 10:22 pm

    “chopstick training wheels” haha love it! i think i will have to try that now. i’ve always been so afraid that I’ll end up spewing my food everywhere, but hey, that just might work 🙂 congrats on following through with your resolution!

    LOVE the video Heather! I have never attempted to eat with chopsticks. Brussels=yum 😉

  22. January 16, 2010 6:34 am

    Miz, Yes yes, guest video. Maybe a video outlining your exercise. I know you’ve done stuff like this before on your blog, but I would love for my readers to hear it. I’m always pushing *Less is More*.

    lol I loved it! You should do more video posts! Keep at it and you’ll be a pro in no time 🙂

  24. January 16, 2010 8:08 am

    Chopsticks are great! Once you get some practice, you can use them to eat anything!

  25. January 16, 2010 11:02 am

    You just made my day with that video. Love it!

  26. January 16, 2010 11:03 am

    I don’t know where I learned this – but I heard that the farther back you hold chopsticks, the more impressive, distinguished and sophisticated you were. No lie. I think it was in a movie, but I certainly believe it. So, therefore, you are all of those things.

  27. January 16, 2010 11:39 am

    Heather, I’ve read your blog for a good while and wanted to say thanks for your refreshing perspective on life (and your recent recommendation on the vegetable spiralizer, which I ordered). Best of luck to you with your chopstick endeavor!

  28. January 16, 2010 11:46 am

    EE, You will LOVE your spriralizer. Thanks for reading. 🙂

  29. January 16, 2010 12:32 pm

    HAHAHA I LOVE YOU! this is adorableeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    chopstix are so fun! sometimes I get impatient and rather use a fork, but for other dishes, chopsticks are KEY.

    love you sooooooooooooo

    Can’t use chopsticks to save my life! Great video, and I’m totally bookmarking that article!

  31. January 16, 2010 12:38 pm

    Genius!! Love it. By the time I finally meet you, I expect you to be an expert 😉 Hehe.

  32. January 16, 2010 1:37 pm

    You’re so cute! I’m too impatient to use chopsticks!

  33. January 16, 2010 1:38 pm

    That was precious! ❤

  34. January 16, 2010 3:00 pm

    I love it! You seem pretty good at using them already. I’m terrible with chopsticks. I’ve never properly learned.

    Love it, guess we all have to start somewhere. Won’t say how long I have been using Chop Sticks. cough over 20 years cough.

    You are so cute! I grew up using chopsticks, so I can eat anything with them and even cook with them. I have a little tip. If you have an Asian grocery store near you, buy some chopsticks that are made out of untreated wood. They are a little harder to find and not that expensive. The texture of the wood makes it easier to grip the sticks. The shiny type ones can become slippery when held. The way you hold your sticks is also one way of doing it. I support the bottom stick against my middle finger’s “writing callous(the callous everyone develops from school)”. This frees up your pointer and thumb to direct the top stick. All you need is a steady grip for the top stick to grab. Sorry this is so long. Hope this helps. 🙂

    Thanks Margie!

    haha! Love the chopstick training wheels! 🙂

  41. January 16, 2010 8:45 pm

    Oh I just discovered your blog and WOW!!! How inspiring!
    I hope you dont mind if I give some of your recipes and meal ideas a try!?

    I am really terrible at eating with chopsticks! You seem to have the hand of it pretty well!

  42. January 16, 2010 8:45 pm

    Chopsticks make eating any type of food more fun. Especially noodles 🙂
    It also helps me slow down when eating. Which is another great aspect.

  43. January 16, 2010 9:00 pm

    Ha! I just got a “chopstick helper” at a mixer we had earlier in the week for my work! I managed to use the chopsticks for the little that I needed them without it, but the helper may have possibly made its way into my purse on the way out the door so I could practice at home. Once I get in a little practice, I can mail it to ya!

    Alice, Yes, yes…Please try my recipes and meals. That’s why I post them! 🙂

  46. January 16, 2010 9:31 pm

    Hehe – thanks Courtney. 🙂

  47. January 16, 2010 9:32 pm

    Trail, Would love “the helper” when you’re done with it. 🙂

  48. January 16, 2010 10:05 pm

    Hi Heather – cutest video ever! um – wasnt sure whether to put this in the comments as it doesnt directly relate to the recent post – but I know this is something a lot of your readers are also interested in… so I thought random comment better than email! I commented a while ago abotu you increasing protein to sort out your hormones – ive had the same issues for a bout 5 years now – totally like 3/4 cycles in that long – ouch! and im super healthy and not underweight – i just lost quite a lot of weight in one go 5 years ago and since then its all been a bit kaput! 🙂 – ANYWAY – great news – my cycle (knock on major wood here 🙂 ) seems to have started again. – following the xmas binge! i ate a lot of hearty food over xmas – but didnt directly overeat or gain any weight. i ate a fair bit of meat – but only had one proper (like 4 course!) meal per day really – so no more meat than i have eaten at various other times in the past. the only real thing I can think that was massively different was a huge increase in my saturated fat intake. normally i get most of my fats from nuts/ nut butter/ oily fish – but over xmas i was consuming a ton of food cooked in butter and with cream. no soy rice milk in sight either – it was all about the full fat! and a lot of cheese! anyways ive done lots of reading around the topic and a lot of people seem to think if you increase your saturate fat it has an effect – but that it has to be saturated. this is so NOT how i normally eat – but i think its definitely worth keeping up with until my hormones regulate a bit (im talking organic raw butter and fresh cream here – NOT krispe kremes etc 🙂 ). besides theres the whole weston price side of things – which reckons saturated fat is not so bad after all! and im kind of with that way of thinking. plus this way i get to carry out having my sprouted bread for breakfast – just with a massive spread of butter on top!! – anyways – though u might be interested! have an awesome rest of ur wknd – hugs xxx

  51. January 17, 2010 8:16 am

    Emma, Thank your for your comment!!!! I’m going to email you later today regarding this topic.

  52. January 17, 2010 4:40 pm

    You are so cute learning to use chop sticks! I’m no good at it 😦

  53. January 18, 2010 9:44 am

    yay for training wheels- I saw those at a Japanese market with cute little pictures on it (it was for kiddies) and I took a photo but it came out all blurry! Good for you. Chopsticks def. slow me down…a GOOOOD thing!

  55. January 18, 2010 11:25 pm
