Good episode? Give it some love!
Have you ever pushed yourself to include certain foods in your diet, even though you didn’t really enjoy them, because they were supposed to be “good for you”? We want to make the best dietary choices to keep our body healthy and happy, but we often miss this key factor: the role of pleasure in the digestive process. As it turns out, we can be eating the most nutritious food in the world, but if we don't like what we're eating, the body simply won’t be able to metabolize it to the fullest – and we might even be setting ourselves up to make less-healthy choices later on. In this fascinating new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, explains why Vitamin P – Pleasure – is an important part of any meal. Tune in to learn why, when it comes to healthy eating, enjoyment really matters.
