sitting down at the table

I didn't quite sit down when I ate yesterday. That is one of those rules that helps you chew your food and eat slowly and I should be doing more of. Note to self.
Well I was cooking dinner and really looking forward to tasting the meal I had prepared: salmon cakes with quinoa and egg. I haven't been able to eat much lately because the constant irritation to my gut has left sores and I have been eating soup and easily digestible veggies. I am skipping wheat and dairy and I haven't even been hungry to be honest....just pushing in food so I can keep exercising.
So the stinky canned salmon really blossomed in the pan into a tantalizing aroma. I got a little emotional thinking, I am really going to enjoy this. what a gift it is to be able to eat.
It got me thinking of all the times I took it for granted:
threw away good food
whined about not being able to find something "good" (unhealthy) in the fridge
not chewed and tasted food
I suppose we all get a dose of what we need serependipitously or otherwise. Im not saying Im glad I've been sick. I just see the world of food from a new angle.
