Ooh this is a big problem for me. I come from an Italian family and I love to cook. It seems every event - happy or sad - is accompanied with food. I also know I cook to show people love.

I can't say I've done much to change this, except I cook healthier foods. My best friend and I now try to plan an event we like to celebrate, such as seeing a film or walking along the river. We've also taken to making a big production out of "having tea." We both have special tea cups that we especially love and a pal of mine bought some incredible herbal blends at a tea shoppe - heady scents of vanilla, rose, blueberry etc. waft up as it is steeping. We make a couple of big mugs and savor them. It is not entirely free of "food" but it is a shift from going out for a vanilla latte and a pastry.

A member brought up that she has known for a long time that she (and just about everyone in our culture) uses food to celebrate. For some of us, this isn't working in the long run. Please post here if you have a suggestion for celebrating without using food as the main focus or an experience you can share.
