Have you ever given any thought to the first time you taste something different? The texture, the flavor, the sensations are often lost in the moment and sometimes the hurry of just eating. I think this is something we all take for granted unless we are engaged in a unique dining experience where we are forced to contemplate what we are consuming. I believe this is unfortunate because if we take the time to truly enjoy our food, and look at it as an experience instead of devouring it, we might actually, accidentally, become healthier in the process. What do you think?
Think about a baby, every time they get introduced to a new food. You can tell by their immediate reaction if they like it or find it repulsive. For your enjoyment check out the link “Leah Eats” of the video below and watch my granddaughter, Leah, as she takes her first taste of solid food – the infamous rice cereal! (Thanks to my daughter-in-law and modern technology, I had the joy of sharing in the moment with her family!) It’s just a delight to watch and perhaps a lesson to remember to truly enjoy what we eat!
