Creative Tip: Make Food a Visual Experience
One benefit of the variety and portioning of traditional Japanese cuisine is that it’s easy to make visually striking meals that look as good as they taste. While you might think that visual appeal has nothing to do with the nutrition of a diet, the aesthetics of your meal can actually help you eat healthier. Being presented with food that is beautiful and eye-catching can force you to slow down to take it in rather than eating it as quickly as possible. Plus, several studies have found that diners perceive their meals as being more delicious and more satisfying when they are prettier to look at. With the sheer variety of colorful ingredients and wealth of different textures, Japanese meals can be a feast for the eyes and mouth.
