Eating at Restaurants: A New Way to Look at a Menu
Once more I want you to picture your cave man ancestor. Think about your inherited tendency to be influenced by the sight of food. You can understand why most restaurant menus now use photographs of delicious foods alongside the written description. What can you do to increase the chance you will choose a meal that is healthier for you? Look someplace where there are pictures of meals that are more healthy. Look in your own head.
When you sit down at a restaurant, do not look at the menu. Sit down, settle in, and think about what you want. From your own experience, from your own appetites, select what you want. Picture chicken, fish, vegetable lasagna, and more. Notice your reactions to each option and think about it. What sounds good to you? When you have found something in your own head that you feel like ordering, now you are ready to look in the menu. However, you are not looking to see what the menu may suggest to you. You are looking for a specific type of dish and where it may be located on the menu. You know what you want. You just need to complete the hunt by finding it on the menu. The "cave man" side of you is satisfied because you hunted through your own list of foods (in your head) and chose what appealed to you. The "modern man" side of you is satisfied because you get to enjoy the convenience of hunting through the menu and finding food that is good for you. What a treat to sit down, think of exactly what you want, and have it delivered to your table!
