Are we creatures of habit regarding the food we eat? Do you pick the same things on the chinese take-away menu when you order in? Do you put more or less the same things in your basket when you are shopping and then cook the same things week in week out?
I think we are programmed to repeat everything that we were bought up with or the routine we established once we moved out and lived away from our parents. We say we do not like certain things but have we actually tried them the last few years as our tastes for things change the older we get. Children can say they do not like some foods by just looking at them and that thought will stay with them as they grow, only some will then taste the foods they thought they didn’t like when older.
I am very prepared to keep drinking the wine and eating the cheese even if it is a habit oh! and the chocolates, cakes and biscuits.
Do you buy and eat out of habit? Why do we do this?
