I always thought that men were more visually oriented than women, and this is true to a certain extent. Men still think in terms of sight, and that is often why they are attracted to certain kinds of food. Women are more visual-oriented and have an intuitive sense of what appeals to them, so their ability to identify what appeals to a man is often much better.
I could not agree more. The women in my life tend to eat more visually oriented, and they tend to be more attracted to certain foods. My wife, for example, is the most visually oriented of anyone I know. She’s a vegetarian, and she thinks in terms of sight more than the average person. That’s her reason for eating meat.
This is an interesting dichotomy that many people fall into. Some people are visual when it comes to the food they eat, and some are not. If you are a visual person, you probably have a greater need for visual cues to guide your eating habits.

I know what you’re thinking, “So, it’s just a case of visual cues?” Yes. The visual cues we like to use so often are actually pretty simple.
Ok so first off, the foods you eat can be visual cues. We tend to get food from a restaurant, use a certain kind of utensil to take our food, and then use that utensil to get something that looks like our desired food. That is the kind of food we are used to eating.
But the food you eat most often is the visual cue you are already looking for. We get calories from a variety of visual cues. Like we are used to eating a certain kind of food by the color of the container, by the shape of the utensil, or by the shape of the utensil we are eating with. We are used to visual cues like these to determine whether we need to be eating a certain type of food.
But if we go for an aesthetic-driven approach, we can actually get a lot of pleasure out of visual cues. Aesthetic food is just food that is visually appealing—just like the color of the container, the shape of the utensil, or the shape of the utensil we are eating with. We can get pleasure from food through visual cues like this as we can get pleasure from eating food, and we don’t have to cook it to get pleasure.
This is a good point. For so long we have been fed the “visual foods” diet. But with the advent of digital food, it seems that food consumption is now not only more visually appealing, but more like eating a meal. And we can get pleasure from food through visual cues as we can get pleasure from eating a meal.
And while we’re eating, we can also get pleasure from food we cook. We can use visual cues to get pleasure in being able to eat a meal. This is probably one of the reasons that we like to cook with our mouths. Also, if we do cook with our mouths, we get to eat a meal with our mouths in our hands without having to chew. It’s pretty cool.
