I often eat too fast in effort to eat certain foods at their peak of optimal pleasure. I scarf down pizza and grilled cheese sandwiches before the cheese starts to solidify. I take large spoonfuls of ice cream (often causing brain freeze) because I don’t like it too melted. I chug coffee and hot chocolate while it’s piping hot and I inhale French fries before they loose their crispiness. This concerns me because I can’t take the time to savor each bite and enjoy the company of others. Eating too fast also leads to eating too much and leaving dinner in a half-comatose state with a belly ache.

Optimal eating can also lead to eating too much just because most things just taste better when they’re fresh. I’ll eat a whole loaf of bread when it comes out of the oven, because it won’t taste as good tomorrow. The same goes for dough nuts, croissants, and pastries. I eat too much when it comes to food that I don’t want to reheat to eat again, like fish, seafood, and red meat.

No, I don’t have a solution for all of this but my friend Angie did send me a link to a company who has a solution for soggy cereal. Eat Me Crunchy has a bowl that keeps most of the cereal separate from the milk so that only a portion of the cereal mixes with milk. It costs about $15 to get it to the US so it’s not bad. I haven’t tried it and I probably won’t because I don’t eat cereal but let me know if you do.
