According to many pundits, what happens in the mouth has an immense influence on general health, meaning that we can sometimes “fix what is broken” by starting with oral hygiene and what is ingested.
Food is an immense subject and I will be writing more and more on it, but it is such a broad — and dare I add habitual routine — that it would be a digression now. However, I would be remiss if failing to mention that senses are interrelated, and the sense of smell is the most basic. So, eating should begin with temptation generated by anticipation of something delectable and nourishing. This promotes salivation. If in doubt, watch your dog! We might not drool quite as much, but we are not so high up the food chain that excitement does not portend pleasure.
