Taste Matters

I came to a startling realization this week. Satisfaction rules my diet! On Monday, I had a high calorie lunch from one of my favorite sandwich shops. As you can see from the nutritional chart, the sandwich alone has 700 calories. I did drink a coke Zero and skipped the chips. Still my lunch at 1:00 pm was 700 calories.

For dinner I had a pork chop, grilled, some broccoli and other veggies grilled and a twice baked potato. I ate around 6:30 or 7 pm. My dinner was less and satisfying! It just didn’t taste good to me. I didn’t think the items complemented each other and well over all I was dis-satisfied with my dinner.

What I found was that I was immediately thinking about a snack. Some satisfying taste to offer my demanding taste buds. Unfortunately, I gave in to the demanding tongue sensors and ate Oreos.

The lesson for me is that I need to have a satisfying dining experience, with pleasing flavor. It can not just be about eating enough.
