If I’m eating some that “annoys me” 9 times out of 10 I’m eating something that isn’t serving my proverbial higher self. I would posture, for example, that subconscious knows when food is lacking in the quality department by this reaction alone.
Taking all variables of our food into consideration, where diet really comes to is: does this food make me happy? When we reflect at how food affects all aspects of our lives, including health, and how food affects how we feel because of it….then we know where to go with our diets.
Eating a Twinkie, for example, might make your mind happy, but does it make your body happy? What about your soul? Is your soul calling for the Twinkie? Let’s be real with ourselves.
True happy food makes us happy in all realms of our Selves. It nourishes our mind-body-spirit. If it doesn’t feed one of those human elements, that can we honestly call it happy food? I think not.
Anyway, this attitude brings super-awareness to the eating process. When we eat with awareness, it’s really challenging to EAT CRAP, it’s hard to binge eat, or starve ourselves, etc. When we eat with awareness we get what we need from food to thrive.
I’d rather be happy.
