What You Fancy-Does You Good
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
What you fancy does you good." said an Irish grandmother. I heard this quote and thought what a wonderful insight. So often in the past I've eaten things that I really don't fancy at all. It simply wasn't good food. It wasn't particularly tasty or nutritious. So why was I eating it? Convenience, to fill up on something, to quell an emotion....but really IT just didn't work.
Since joining SP, I have been making better food choices. Reflecting on this quote, I also realize that I'm eating more of what I fancy. I'm enjoying my choices now. They don't have that empty, unsatisfying feeling.
Tonight for dinner, I had a bit of salmon, a sweet potato with cinnamon and toast-of course. I've always fancied toast. My toast choice was Pepperidge Farm VERY thin bread.
Now I wonder why I don't employ this quote in other parts of my life. Am I doing things I fancy? After raising a large family, I put my needs and likes second. Either I've forgotten or never really developed a deep fancy for activities (except the woods), So it's time to do some investigating. What do I fancy? Surely those things will be really good for me.
