Take A Picture, It’ll Taste Better

taking-photos-792009_960_720A new study by St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia and the University of San Diego found that taking a picture before you eat actually makes your food TASTE better.

Here’s why.  When you pause to take a picture of your food and possibly share it on Instagram, the delayed gratification makes you enjoy it even more once you start eating it.

There’s one catch:  The researchers found the effect only works with UNHEALTHY food.

If you Instagram your salad, it’s still going to feel like you’re choking down a salad once you start eating.  But if you take a picture of your chocolate-covered fried chicken, it’ll taste even better once you start mowing it down.
