Eating food is more than just nutrition and satisfying hunger, it’s also about coming together with family and friends. By making your meals an event for enjoyment you can begin to think about food in a new light. Paying attention to what you’re eating and the pleasures you’ll get in flavours and tastes can encourage you to make better food choices.
- Present your meal beautifully to enhance the dining experience
- Take your time when you’re eating to savour flavours and enjoy each mouthful. Spend at least 15 minutes eating each meal
- Size does matter – Bigger size does not mean bigger flavour- in fact it is often the opposite!
- Enjoy the journey – make cooking the meal part of the enjoyment process. But don’t eat while cooking – this increases your total serving size and calorie intake without being noticed.
