Hunger? Temptation? Stress? Nourishment?
I'm always curious to learn how people decide what to put in their grocery cart or on their dinner plate. Personally, I'm always looking at the nutrients in food. As a vegetarian I try to make sure I get enough protein each day.
But, sometimes the appearance of a certain food makes me want to gobble it down too. (Cookies, I'm looking at you!)
Do you pay attention to the basic food groups each day? For example, if you haven't' had any fruit by mid-afternoon, do you try to get a few servings in as a snack or with dinner? I know I'm probably in the minority, but I do consciously think about what I'm eating at each meal.
So, think about what you've eaten today.
Why did you put it in your mouth? Did it look good? Was it what was available? Did it satisfy a craving? Is it what the doctor said you should eat? I'm curious! Tell me about your food choice habits in the comments below.
