I think that the taste exercise that we did in small groups was by far the most difficult for me. I was slightly able to “taste” the sweets that I was eating. But it just seemed so unnatural while attempting to eat, I felt very uncoordinated and jerky in my motions. Then as I watched the exercise it didn’t seem like any of us truly acted the way we do when we eat. In the exercise we were in slow motion while “eating” and our movements didn’t really match up because we were trying too hard to be natural. I thought that was very ironic comparing it to some of the other post about how fast many of us eat, and just get in and get out of convo. I totally agree on the fact of how quickly we eat and we look like “cows” as someone mentioned. But I just think that it is odd that in reality we buzz through food when we are given the chance to taste it (and probably don’t most of the time). Class gave us the chance to savor the food that wasn’t there and began to work on my taste a little bit.
