The video is important for those in my Thanksgiving Challenge:

 

 

People choose foods and drinks for five basic reasons; appearance, taste, health, cultural and religious values, physiological and social needs, and budgetary concerns. When people choose a food, they evaluate it consciously or unconsciously, primarily by how it looks, smells, tastes, feels, and even sounds.

How a food or beverage affects the senses is more important than other criteria.

SIGHT: The eyes receive the first impressions of foods; the shapes, colors, consistency, serving size, and presence of any outward defects. Color can denote ripeness, degree of dilution, and how much it was heated. Black bananas, barely yellow lemonade, and scorched macaroni send visual signals that may alter choice. Clovers can be deceiving; if the colors of two identical fruit flavored beverages are different, people may perceive them as tasting different even though they are exactly the same.

People may judge milks fat content by the color. If the color of reduced fat milk is improved it will be judged as a higher fat content, smoother in texture, and better in flavor than the reduced fat milk with the original color.

The colors of food on a plate contributes or detracts from the appeal.Imagine a plate with baked fish, mashed potatoes, boiled cabbage, and vanilla ice cream.  Then compare that to a nicely browned chicken breast, sweet potatoes, green peas, and blueberry cobbler.  Most people would prefer the chicken plate based on sight appeal.

ODOR: Smell is almost as important as appearance.

TASTE: Taste is usually the most influential factor in choice. But what is being tasted? A combination of volatile and nonvolatile compounds dissolved in each taste bud on the tongue.

Taste relies on the taste buds connection to the brain (sour salt sweet bitter,savory)

FLAVOR includes both taste and aroma.

Sensory evaluation of foods actually involves APPEARANCE, FLAVOR, TEXTURE, and MOUTHFEEL.  

 

TEXTURE and MOUTHFEEL are also very important. Some people don't like the texture of certain foods, or it reminds them of something they disliked as a child.

Try when you eat to think of all of these things and WHY you are choosing your foods for the day.

Slowing down and thinking of sensations with each bite and why you like and choose your foods will help you think about future choices.

Keep a journal and write down WHY you chose the foods you chose today.

 

Those of you who are in my Thanksgiving Challenge are welcome to comment in the forum ON THIS SUBJECT (Why you choose foods) and I'll respond to your comments there.

 

Here's the CHALLENGE ASSIGNMENTS AND SCHEDULE.

 

 

OTHER FUN STUFF: 

 

 

 

That's Shamu Randy's horse nickering while I talk. You already know I'm married to the cat whisperer, but there is more to that story right? You know a man who is good with animals and nature makes an amazing husband.

Randy loves me so much that he is just as tuned into me as the rest, he knows by the sound of how I close the gate at the end of the driveway, or close doors, or the sound of my footsteps and my movements what kind of mood I'm in.

 

 



Randy never tells me what to do, but I could tell it would help him if I went to get those bails of hay for Shamu in the next picture. I can't lift anything right now, but I was still able to run the errand and go up on those bails to tie them down for the long trip home.

Shamu needs his greens, and so does Randy and me. We want to live a long healthy life. We give our pets the best so why would we not give ourselves the best? It is our best health insurance. Us taking care of our bodies for the long haul. The 1st Phorm greens are certified organic 🌿🌱 Ask me questions about this anytime 😎

 

 


So, I've stated WHY I choose these supplements, they are right for me. What is right for you might be totally different. Several of my people both in the challenge as well as people I help in general recently started on these. I personally like the taste of these particular greens and I've tried many.  If I have to choke it down because it's dry and chalky I won't stick with it. Things have to taste and FEEL good to me.  I'm picky. But I also want quality and honesty in a product.

 

Our health will bring us more happiness than anything else, besides love.

So happy Sunday and a long healthy life with love! 💙💚💜💛

 

PS: Anyone who purchases any 1st Phorm product this month from me will be entered into a drawing to win either the Opti-Greens 50 or the Micro Factor products next month, your choice.  If you are someone I'm working with and we've build up trust between us and you decide to use the EasyPhorm discount option on anything you can have access to the private FORUM too (ladies only!)
