Turn you and your family into 'happy eaters'! Eating should be a source of pleasure. If you eat something and you are not satisfied, what do you do?
You think to yourself, "That was boring, what else can I find?" until you hit the sensory qualities in food that bring a smile to your face and to your taste buds.
In essence, if you zero in on the foods you find satisfying early on in your eating experience, you may, in fact, eat fewer calories in your pursuit for pleasure.
Happy eaters can experience easier digestion. If you eat under stressful circumstances, your body produces different neurotransmitters and hormones than it does when you are happy.
And, trying to avoid negative associations with food is important to your long-term relationship with food. If eating at the dinner table always reminds you of fighting with your family, try to "table" the conflicts for another time.
