I have been eating a paleo diet for about three weeks now. I realized the other day that I have enjoyed food a lot more in the last three weeks than I have in a long time. That sounds crazy! I have cut out a lot of things from my diet and been forced to cook a lot more. How can I enjoy food more when I take out grains, dairy, beans, soy, corn, etc?
I have always had a love/hate relationship with food. I love to eat, but then nothing sounds good. I don't want to cook. I don't want to eat out. I think a lot of this emotional tension over food is that a lot of foods made me feel blah. When you eat something and then feel blah, it doesn't sound good the next time you think about eating it. Over the last few weeks, I have not felt blah. Nothing has disagreed with me. You can enjoy food so much more when you don't have to worry how you will feel after you eat it.
Did I mention I have also had fewer headaches? Another bonus.
Anyway, I look forward to trying more paleo recipes and see where this new journey takes me. I am learning to enjoy food and learning how to make good decisions when eating out.
What kind of relationship do you have with food?
