If reading the words first date make your palms sweaty and your heart beat a little faster than normal, this link is for you. If you think you’re immune, you might want to read this anyway. Then, check a mirror - overconfidence has a way of making food get caught in your teeth.
The article is about more than just picking foods that are easier to eat (though we’ll say, for the record, that we encourage that too). It looks at the properties in the foods themselves, and how they can lead to all kinds of first-date fringe benefits.
Evidently, chicken calms your nerves, and tomato juice makes you seem more attractive (and here we thought our grandmothers drank it for the lycopene). And don’t forget to choose olive oil whenever possible: its life-lengthening qualities ensure that when your date inevitably proposes to you, you’ll spend many, long years in loving matrimony. So much for just ordering what looks good.
