Eating with food with hands is an age old tradition but with modern technology and the invention of forks and knives, this tradition is slowly disappearing with the newer generation.
What many people don’t know that eating with hands is considered healthy and provides many health benefits:
Improves digestion: Touch is one of the most strongest and often used sensation in the body. When we touch our food with our hands, the brain signals our stomach that we are about to eat.
Promotes mindful eating: Eating with your hands requires you to pay attention to what you are eating.
Protects your mouth from getting burnt: Your hands also act as a very effective temperature sensor.
But before you decide to touch food makes sure you wash your hands thoroughly.
