Gesto Jueves: Buen Provecho!

*Buen provecho: phrase used in Guatemala after finishing a meal meaning  “I hope you digest your food well”.

This is said by all members of family, or group of friends who have sat down together for a meal. The first person to leave the table should say “muchas gracias” or thank you very much, and everyone else should respond with buen provecho regardless of who cooked the meal.
