Full vs Satisfied
There is a big difference between being physically full vs. satisfied.
Do you find yourself wanting a little something more after your meal, despite being full? It could be because what you ate didn’t satisfy you. When you eat a meal that “hits the spot,” you’ll leave the table feeling content.
Ways to increase satisfaction of your meal
*Make it pretty: make your meal colorful and visually appetizing.
*Please your palate: aim to incorporate different flavors, textures and temperatures to your plate to keep your taste buds interested.
*Honor your cravings: if you’re in the mood for a warm, hearty soup for lunch, but have a salad instead, you might feel physically full, but not necessarily satisfied. So when it comes time to eat, do your best to figure out what you are truly craving and what will be most satisfying to you in that moment.
It’s helpful to understand into your food preferences and tune into your cravings. By listening to your body, you’ll gain a better sense of which foods you find most satiating, and those that leave you craving more.
