I think cook books without photos of all dishes are a waste of paper. I will not attempt to cook a new dish based on an inanimate list of ingredients. Pictures bring the anticipated flavors and visual feast to life and I get inspired to cook, even using ingredients I don't know how to pronounce.
A colorful cook book is also great for breaking out of a meal rut or inspiration when meal ideas are drying up.
In order to force myself to eat slower and ENJOY my food, I choose to eat when possible (here at home, anyway) with one of my daughters' colorful toddler spoons. I take smaller bites, chew things up better before swallowing, and I feel as though I eat more simply because it takes me longer to eat.
