Every Nigerian likes to eat meat last after eating a delicious food.
Nigerians do not touch their meat till they have finished eating their food. They usually save it like they were saving the best for the last.
Now what is special about the meat that it is saved for last? Well, Doronize.com brings you some reasons why Nigerians eat meat last.
1. Home training and upbringing
A lot of people were brought up that way. Some children were taught by their mothers not to eat their meat until they had finished the food. In some homes, you dare not touch your meat if you have not finished your food or you would be scolded. So, most children grew up into adulthood with that habit of eating meat last.
2. Based on personal habit
3. Motivation and encouragement
4. Saving best for the last
Some people value their meat so much and believe it should be reserved for the last. To them, the meat is the trophy they get for finishing the food.
5. Avoiding embarrassment
How would you feel if you ate your meat at the beginning and a visitor walks in? The visitor will just assume you cannot afford meat and that is why you are eating without meat.
6. The food will look unappealing to eat
A meatless plate makes the food look unappealing. There are people who will never eat food that has no meat. The meat on top of the plate is like the icing on top of the cake.
7. Trying to have enough time to enjoy the meat
The meat can be hard sometimes and eating it in between meals would take time. Pausing in between your meal to spend a considerable time battling a piece of meat can make you lose your appetite.
