Can Your Relationship Pass The Dinner Test?

Found your soulmate? Good job! But will eating together make you reconsider? Believe it or not, a spouse or long-term partner can influence your eating habits a great deal. When you’re dating, different styles of eating may not become immediately obvious, but try going for years without letting these differences take a toll on you.

One big step in the life of a couple is the decision of moving in together. When that happens, ideally, there is already a strong bond between the two lovebirds, a bond that is kept by many common views and habits. (more…)

5 Low-Calorie Healthy Meals You Already Have At Home

There is a pretty big hype about some so-called negative calories foods. These are supposed to help you lose weight as an effect of making your body burn more calories than they contain. The argument behind the negative calories food theory is that certain fruits in vegetables are so high in water and fiber that your digestive system will end up burning more calories than those ingested.

That doesn’t mean, however, that we shouldn’t take advantage of the low calories foodstuff through these hot summer weeks, when heavy meals are unconceivable anyway.

sweet girl tastes cake

The Sweet Taste Of Love

Sweetness, sugar, honey, cutie pie are all pet names people in love use to express their feelings for each other. Love is widely associated with food that tastes sweet, and several teams of psychologists asked whether there is something more to it than a simple metaphor. Turns out we are so used to linking love to sweets that now we are more prone to being attracted to a potential partner if we’re given something sweet to eat at a first date. That makes (can you guess it?) falling in love a piece of cake!

Words have power beyond just describing the world, and that’s clear in many ways, but who knew that all those metaphors about love tasting sweet could gain such a literal sense? To everyone’s surprise, experiments showed that potential partners were more open towards starting a relationship when they had something sweet to eat over the first date.
