I decided to take myself out for lunch today! Do you ever eat out by yourself? I do! I get to choose which ever restaurant I want, at the time and date of my choosing. It is the best.
I had an amazing cheddar ale soup, pretzel bread, and a side salad. (Minus the lettuce. I hate lettuce!)
I had a little room left. I ordered a red velvet cupcake with coconut cream cheese frosting.
It was HUGE! Way more I could ever eat mindfully in one sitting. Plus, it’s not like I had a gigantic amount of room left to fully enjoy it.
I tried the cake first. It was not that great. So, I concentrated on the frosting. It was pretty good, but very rich. The cupcake actually came with strawberries & whipped cream on the side. I enjoyed dipping the strawberries into the frosting.
I ate about a third of the cupcake, and packaged the rest of it eat when I had more appetite.
In hindsight, my body wishes it had received more protein. Every eating experience is a lesson in attunement 101 it seems!
What is your food teaching you?
