I’m definitely the type of person who eats to live, rather than living to eat. Although I like snacking and attend almost every event I can where I get free food, the reasons behind my actions tend to be more utilitarian rather than liking food (such as saving time or money). I tend to take a careless approach to eating – I eat what’s available, and tend not to particularly seek out special foods. If I don’t have easy access to food, I might sometimes opt out of a meal, or just drink some water instead. My parents like to go out and eat at restaurants, and a lot of restaurants to which we go together are about an hour or so away. Even in those situations, I think the traveling distance is too far, so, addressing the second part of the question, I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t travel much for food, even if I were to be offered the best meal of my life. I think the main reason behind this is that once I finish the meal, the experience is over, and I don’t have a particular preference for short-term enjoyment; I tend to be more attracted to things that have a more long-term or permanent effect on my future pleasure or comfort.
Some people eat to live, while others live to eat. What about you? How far would you travel for the best meal of your life?Source: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2012/12/21/daily-post-live-eat/
