Texture is an often overlooked aspect of food preference. And it’s apparently why more expensive pasta tastes better.
Since one part of intuitive eating is figuring out what food you actually enjoy most, understanding food texture can be helpful.
It rarely gets the attention it deserves, but food’s texture is just as important as its flavor. Bubble tea, fried tortilla chips and salsa, panna cotta, Greek salad and a perfect egg omelet are all dependent on this neglected quality.
So, the next time you’re eating something wonderful, ask yourself if texture is playing a fundamental role in how much you’re enjoying your meal.
