Thoughts about food.

Today I was eating a saltine. After a long, hot, outdoor run (and yes, I enjoyed it) and the salt and the texture tasted so good.

I was so present in the moment of eating that saltine.

I think I had an epiphany.

As long as I am eating and enjoying every level of the food, then it is ok. Using all five senses to enjoy it and really feeling and tasting it.

I think if I do this and the moment I stop using every sense to enjoy the food to stop eating.

This may in fact be the trick to finding the, "I can eat anything I want and as much of it as I want and still look great" phenomenon that those rare aliens speak about.

I don't know, but man those saltines tasted good. And I am content. Ahhh.

  1. I am soooooooooo with you. That was won of my new years resolutions. EAT only what I love and enjoy. Sad - it's harder to do than it sounds.
