Craving for a lot of things, food that you are not sure of what exactly it is, and what you only know is you want to eat something delicious? I know, I do too crave like that. If you have an extra budget then maybe buffet dining is the answer. In a buffet, your favorite food could be there and satisfying your unknown craving. However, be careful.. Don’t just jump right into it and devour everything right there. That’s not the wisest thing to do. So below are some of my tips in dining at a buffet.
1. Go for small portions of everything – buffet can be very overwhelming, and if you are a slapsoil like me.. food everywhere and eat all you can is such a heavenly experience. However, your belly has limits so if you want to try everything.. go for small portions.. like 1 spoonful only, that small, yes that small.
2. Start with a soup or salad – prep your belly before the fight, salad or especially soup will inform your stomach and the high water content of it makes it easy for your lovely belly to handle the next round.
3. Take a chocolate break – it sounds weird, yep! but chocolate will reset your sense of taste and rebalance your blood sugar after chowing down that savory food you took. This perks you up and gets back you on track in the game.
4.. Avoid fizzy drinks – this is a very common restaurant technique, for their customers to feel full.. though they are an eat-all-you-can buffet and they have expected already the maximum person’s ability to chow down food.. they still prefer to further limit that. And you don’t want to miss your favorite food because you feel full, don’t you?
5. Drink tea after – after you gorging all those food time for post-buffet damage control! Drink tea especially a peppermint tea to aid your digestion and reduce the bloating or nausea.
