Think about it, a fantastic morsel of chocolate is much more satisfying than a brick of mediocre chocolate. A few thin slices of the best cured ham blow a pound of bologna out of the water when it comes to feeding your soul. We eat primarily to survive, though considering we are talking about going on a diet, it seems obvious we’ve gone past that point.
Another reason we eat is to satisfy our emotions. We don’t want to survive on oatmeal, we want to live on lox! Adding a glass of delicious, thought provoking wine to one’s diet is a way to add more than calories to a meal. It can make a meal special and add something deeper than mere sustenance to our diets, while making us feel good about what we’re eating. And no, that isn’t just the alcohol talking.
