We are traveling, staying in a hotel with a free breakfast buffet. So-called "free" food can be a real trigger for me, with the idea that I should eat everything I crave so I don't "waste" the chance to have it. But I have developed an axiom about these kinds of things . . . "There is a price to everything, and the cheapest way to pay is ALWAYS with money." What this means to me in this situation is that the food may be free in terms of cost, but if I eat too much, I pay a different kind of price, a much higher one. This morning when I went to the buffet I had a small serving cottage cheese with fruit, and then I asked for scrambled egg whites with a side of spinach, the same thing I eat at home every other day. When I got up to leave, I felt satisfied, not too full, and so happy not to be stuffed with bread, muffins, pancakes, french toast, syrup, juice, and every other kind of thing that I never choose at home. I love my regular breakfast and was so happy that I could have it cooked for me here! By the way, if you've never thought of having spinach in the morning, give it a try. I take a GIANT handful, put it in a bowl, microwave it, add a tiny bit of butter and salt, and start my day that way. SO GOOD! SO HEALTHY! YUM!
