If you enjoy starting your day with a bowl of cereal, you just might be making a big mistake according to researchers at Oxford University. So before you dig in to that bowl of Shredded Wheat, you should never, EVER…
…..eat it out of a round bowl.
Yep, researcher Jennifer Newson tells the Daily Mail that eating cereal from a SQUARE bowl will make you feel fuller and more nourished.
Jennifer says, “Participants who consumed cereal from a round shaped bowl found it less nutritious than those eating from a square shaped bowl. The interviews conducted with those who took part in the experiment suggest many of us eat with our eyes, and because the cereal looked more appetizing in a square shaped bowl, the participants found it more nutritious.”
According to Newson, more than ever, people are eating ‘on the go’, and they discovered that eating standing up actually increased how wholesome people thought the cereal was. “Based on new evidence it could be argued that when we’re not sitting down at a breakfast table, our brain’s perception of nutrition is higher.”
Hmm. Alright, then….grab a square bowl of Cheerio’s and take a seat….er, no, keep standing. 🙂 ~ Jason
