Eating for My Mind & Mouth…or Stomach

I think about food a lot.
What I would like to make, what I need to pick up from the store, what I wish I knew how to do, pairings, the list goes on and on….

During this process I cannot tell you how many times I think “ooh that would be so good” or “I really want _____”  (Ok this doesn’t even have to be when I’m THINKING about food. Today? “Cold Stone Creamery sounds Awesome!”)

Then tonight a thought occurred to me.  Most of the evening I’d been craving something, but purposely avoiding it because it’s not exactly healthy, and I’d had dinner already.  After a while I relalized  I wasn’t actually hungry.  I was craving the smell and taste of it, I would no doubt enjoy eating it, but I wasnt hungry. So why eat?

I know.  This seems like such a simple and obvious idea, but as a grazer, this can be a challenge for me.

So that’s a new goal.  Ask myself ‘Am I actually hungry?  (and to give myself a more solid question–) “Am I hungry enough that I would eat an apple (or something to its equivalent)”
Basically–am I wanting to eat for my mind & mouth, or my stomach?

    I do this a lot. And, in your words, my mind is often the hungriest. Not sure what that means, but I indulge it sometimes.

    I do this a lot myself. I read Naturally Thin (or something like that) and it said to do that.
