Eating Habits Her vs His

Growing up in New Zealand and seeing both worlds I can see there are benefits to both sides. The poly’s know how to throw a good party and the palangi’s know how to have portion control. Here’s a list of our different eating habits maybe we can learn from one another and figure out why we eat the way we do.

Hers His
She cooks for double or triple the amount in their household because you never know when aunts uncles third cousins are going to arrive. He cooks for exact people so you can’t just show up at the doorstep and expect to be fed. That’s why it’s called RSVP!
She makes sure you clean and lick your plate and ask for thirds you end up having no room for dessert but will make you eat dessert anyways. He eats until you are satisfied and save room for dessert so they don’t feel sick after!
She eat until they can’t move and the only next activity is sleep. He use food as just energy booster for other activities throughout the day.
At a buffet She stack their plates full just in  so they have more time to enjoy their food and don’t have to make several trips. He just put enough on the plate knowing they can always come back for more.
She drink after they eat so they have more space for food. He drinks before so they have less space for food.
She can eat meat for breakfast lunch dinner! He eats variety of meats, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, paleo meals.
She are satisfied once there is no dessert left. He eats a slice of cake and call it good! It’s nice to save something for the next day.
She don’t have any allergies surprisingly enough. While He have allergies to everything under the sun nuts dairy gluten honey eggs soy wheat shellfish.


I know these are complete stereotypes, but I just wanted to make the clear distinctions to how and why many of us eat the way we do and think the way we do. Our people and culture is very giving and loving, and we use food to show that love. But we also need to be cautious in what we are teaching our children and the habits they will be forming. Our health is one of the most important gifts we can give to our families. Coming from a family with a history of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure I could say it’s inevitable, that I will get it. We can break the chain it’s the lifestyle we choose to live. It can be changed if you so choose and see it fit for you!
