Thinking, Thinking, Thinking

emoticon Have you ever thought about how much time we spend thinking about food? Eat this; eat that; shop for this or that; track it before or track it after; plan your menus; look for recipes; should I or shouldn't I? And it goes on and on!!

Today I was thinking about how much thinking I do about food and eating and find it amazing that there is almost no part of my life that is not consumed (see what I mean) by food!

I'm not complaining and I have plenty of other things to do in my life, but...just thinking!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It's when I think my foods out that I succeed...... Unfortunately food will probably be my focal point for the next couple of years but if it works then HOORAY for thinking! emoticon

    You nailed it for me, Jeannie. That is why I'm having such a hard time getting going, again. I haven't got all the time in the world to be thinking, thinking, thinking about food. :( I keep looking for easier ways to not be thinking about food all the time. So far, I haven't found any. :( And, I "am" complaining. :)

    Have a great day ~ and if you find the ''secret' ~ let me know, please! emoticon emoticon

    Like OKBACK2ME said...maybe it's time we REALLY start to THINK before we eat!

    I agree that we have been thinking about food a lot. I have to say that after many years of not thinking about food I am morbidly obese so I guess a little obsession might be good for me! emoticon

    You are right. Growing up it seems food wasn't so important to most people or at least the people I grew up with. We had our healthy 3 meals a day and for the most part was satisfied with that and didn't think about food 24/7. Now days it seems you can't even go to any kind of meeting or get together without food being at the Center of things. I won't even go into how fast food is addictive and many people eat it every day. I wish more women and men would learn how to cook and not rely on microwaving a so called meal or worse yet resorting to a quick meal at the drive through. Any kind of social get together has to have something to eat at least the ones I go to. We need to eat to live not live to eat as the saying goes. I love your insight Jeannie and you are 100% right. Good for you for noticing and making me think.

    Hugs & Love,

    I've often thought it would be much easier if we didn't have to eat at all - but not practical in the grand scheme of things. I remember my Mom and Aunt, talking about what to fix for the next meal right after they had eaten one.

    Definitely true, and I think this is what has driven our society to rely on "fast" food. We just don't have enough hours a day to do all this thinking! emoticon
