Heard from a patient:
Those who eat exciting food will live a boring life.
If you want an exciting life, eat boring food.
The idea here is if you spend a lot of effort, money, and time on what you eat, you will have great eating experiences and consume exciting food, but you won’t be able to concentrate on other life experiences as much.
If you, alternatively, eat similar foods every day, being able to budget with higher efficiency in shopping and cooking timing – you will eat boring foods (same things often), but you will be free to do more things and likely able to maintain a healthy weight functionally allowing you to do more exciting things in life.
