Word associations with food
Thursday, August 01, 2013
I've been realizing in the last year or two, but particularly since I got pregnant, that I've started making immediate associations with food when I see certain words that might be completely unrelated to food but have some vague connection. Like I'll see something that uses the word "straw" and my mind will instantly jump to "strawberries! yummy!" Or I'll be reading something about a golf club and I'll think "CLUB SANDWICH!" Just now I was reading an article about child fashion and came across the word "panache" and my mind immediately went to "mmmmmmmm chocolate ganache."
What is up with that??? Am I creepily obsessed with food or something?
I swear, I feel kind of like I must be a little crazy when I suddenly make these associations out of nowhere. Maybe it's just a result of spending so much time planning and tracking my food to make sure I cover all my nutrients and food groups and calorie needs? Does anyone else do this?
