2. Digest Before Returning for Seconds
In addition to savoring every mouthful, take time to digest after you have finished your meal. The buffet isn’t going anywhere! It can take 20 minutes for our bodies to recognize we are full. Give your body time to digest and enjoy your first helpings, then decide if you really need seconds. You may just decide you’ve already had exactly what you need.
1. Be Sure to Tip the Staff
It may seem silly to tip the restaurant staff when you have been serving yourself. But if you stop to notice, the staff keeps busy at buffet restaurants as well. Waitstaff clear away used dishes, replenish the buffet with fresh servings, and keep plates and utensils stocked. In some restaurants, they refill your beverages as well. Be sure to remember these hard workers with a well-earned tip.
