“The more you eat, the less flavor; the less you eat, the more flavor.” ~Chinese Proverb
While we often rely on more than one of the five senses to decide what to eat, the saying that we “eat with our eyes” is sometimes too true! One’s sense of smell and taste are distinct, yet visual stimuli can trump the 4 other senses, with color perhaps, the most visual cue. Next time you’re sitting down for a scrumptious, indulgent meal, really try to embrace the flavors, who knows, you may only need a bite or two to really appreciate what’s in front of you! 1.
