Eating by touch

Yes, you heard me! I often eat by touch. No, I do not pick up my food with my fingers. I use my knife and fork to help navigate the food on my plate. Believe it or not, using touch to decipher the difference between and among such foods as rice, potatoes, pasta, meat, beans, peas, and vegetables does indeed work.

I run my knife and fork lightly over my food to get an idea as to what I am eating. That is, if I am not the one who has laid it out on my plate or if someone has not told me before hand. I do the same for desserts and soups. It works like a charm.
