Food Taste Better

Post by Aprilsparrow » Sat Apr 13, 2013 12:17 pm

Has anyone else experienced that when you are on No S days that food actually taste better? I think because I am not stuffing myself with food and actually hungry between meals so everything taste better. :)

Yep! Someone here has the tag line that goes like: appetite is the best spice, or something like that.

I am slowwwwly learning to actually prefer hunger. Slowly. I definitely appreciate it for maybe the first time, consciously.

I've noticed that, too. No-S is certainly part of it, but I think it's also because I'm eating better quality food. Junk tastes like junk.

This topic comes up over and over. It is cited as one of the major reasons No S-ers like the plan so much. It makes it more likely we will wait until we're hungry enough to reach that point. I've found I have to eat less and less at my meals to get to it.

Proverbs 27:7 One who is full loathes honey from the comb,
but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet. :wink:

Although, I sometimes think the word "loathes" is a bit strong in this translation. haha
I guess this doesn't work unless you actually do it.

I guess honey was the chocolate of Biblical times.

I agree, I now enjoy the feeling of hunger! Never thought I'd see the day.

This may be a bit off topic, but I think they make the point that quality food tastes better -- and may lead to us eating less.

These articles are written by Wini Moranville, author of The Bonne Femme Cookbook:

The French (Non!) Diet, Part I: Eat Three Courses for Dinner

The French (Non!) Diet, Part II: Be Choosier About Cheese

The French (Non!) Diet, Part III: Enjoy a Variety of Flavors

The French Tartar Sauce Diet (!?)
Wini Moranville wrote:Eat foods that taste great (like a beautiful homemade tartar sauce) rather than so-so foods, and you’ll naturally need to eat less to feel satisfied.
In another post I mentioned that I subscribed to The Fresh 20 a couple of weeks ago. At this time, all of the menus are planned for four people; I cut them down to serve one. The food is so good I'm finding I don't need to eat more to be satisfied.

Last night for dinner I had pasta shells and cheese, salad, and veggies. As good as it tasted, I felt like I was having a fancy meal. I could get used to this! :wink:
