Perhaps if we enjoyed our food more, we would eat less.

An interesting article on the health website shares simple strategies anyone can use to get more enjoyment out of their food.

The article makes the case that having eating rituals aids in enjoyment.

Here are a few examples of eating rituals.

  1. Giving thanks.
  2. Dividing your food (ex., a chocolate bar) into halves and eating each portion at different times.
  3. Savoring your food by eating slowly.
  4. Preparing the meal.
  5. Setting the table and/or lighting a candle.
  6. Turning off distractions (TV, etc.) while eating.

The article is worth a read.
