Some Tips For Managing The Temptations Of Holiday Eating

This Sparked Me!

What has worked for me is to sample and savor. Ever heard of the 3 bite rule? The 1st bite of something has the most flavor and delights your taste buds. The 2nd bite has less flavor than the 1st. The 3rd bite has even less flavor than the 2nd. If you have more bites, the flavor will be minimal and the same level of enjoyment just isnít really there anymore. You're just eating to be eating beyond that. So, take a very small amount of the dishes that interest you the most. Eat slowly. Savor them!

There are always so many wonderful dishes and it is tempting to eat too much of everything. Instead, try this 3 bite approach with only the best dishes. You will find that your palate is delighted and you feel satisfied by the variety of flavors without overindulging!
