Doesn’t it make you raise an eyebrow at how complex you are, yet you function like a well-orchestrated symphony with all your senses playing their part.
You came into the world experiencing the sense of taste, and everything you taste is something you will remember.
By nature, your body will naturally gravitate towards healthy foods for proper nutrition. You are amazing like that.
When grabbing a handful of something to push in your face as you walk out the door, at least eat slowly. Savor the fast food you eat on the run.
By really honing in on all of the flavors you eat, you may find that some snacks lack flavor and others have too much salt or sugar.
Taste every spicy and robust combination, every acrid taste, sour and sweet. When they come across your 10,000 taste buds in the mouth, you have been created to recognize them and identify their flavors.
You can distinguish decadent tastes from yucky tastes even by their aroma.
Become more aware of the textures and tastes of the foods that you choose to nourish your body.
Eat, drink, and be merry! But, savor every sip and every swallow!
Here's your exercise: (60 second intervals) Focus your attention on the things you eat and pass through your lips.
Taste things with intent to identify their distinct flavors and textures. Relish all the flavors and pinpoint them.
Pretend you are a food critic or a wine taster!
Bring your focus to all the typical things you consume in a day, and eat slowly. Savor every moment with everything you eat as though it's your favorite meal, or chocolate cake, or a banana, a peach, you name it.
Pay attention for 60 seconds!
You may find you don't really even enjoy everything you eat!
