We Eat With Our Eyes
The appearance of the food we eat can positively or negatively affect the overall enjoyment and experience of our meals. Elite Pureed Meals creates the best experience for those who have difficulties swallowing by producing high quality, nutritious, and visually appealing meals. We do this by pureeing nutritious meals and then recreating them into their original, visually appealing forms. By acknowledging that people tend to eat first with their eyes, taking in the appearance of a meal and then deciding if it will be appetizing, Elite Pureed Meals proves that even food can bring about love at first sight.
The plating of meals is an influential part of the eating experience. According to Chef Shaya, from At Your Palate, “plating dishes is one of the most careful and important tasks of chefs around the world. Chefs take time to plate their dishes solely to make the food appealing to those consuming it.” Chef Shaya writes about a study done by Polytechnic University of Valencia and Oxford University, published in the Journal of Sensory Studies. This study reported that even the color of the plate that the meal is served on could alter the perceived flavors of the food itself. This shows the importance of the color and appearance on a person’s overall enjoyment of a meal.
When we eat with our eyes first, we are influenced by more than just the color, however. Nina Marinello, from Times Union, explains that the shape and size of food is also extremely important to how appealing a meal will be. She states that the shape and size of the food helps people believe that they will enjoy the meal even before eating it. The appearance, according to Marinello, gives them the sense they will be satisfied by the meal after they consume it. This helps encourage those suffering from dysphagia to see it is possible to enjoy a meal, even from first glance.
Elite Pureed Meals' careful attention to the color, shape, and size of their food demonstrates to those with swallowing difficulties that eating with one's eyes is the first step to a delicious and nutritious meal.
Elite Pureed Meals is dedicated to preparing meals that emulate the visual features of a traditionally prepared meal, without sacrificing taste or nutrition. So people with swallowing difficulties can enjoy their meals with both their eyes and their palates. The care and detail that goes into the presentation, quality, and enjoyment of our meals is our recipe for a satisfied customer.
