Diary of a Mindful Eater – day three

How often do you eat something and go OMG that was gorgeous?  That was how I reacted to my Salmon Stir fry below.  Don’t you just love it when you eat something that just hits the spot.  Sometimes it is just about eating consciously.  But often added to that is the knowledge that you are eating things that will promote a sense of wellbeing, boost your immune system and give you boundless energy.  I have found since I began eating Mindfully that some things just don’t agree with me.  When you eat mindlessly you don’t always acknowledge or make the connection between what you have eaten and how you feel.  I have recently found that drinking alcohol makes be feel down for the whole of the next day.  Chocolate appears to have the same effect.  But last week when I had my Salmon Stir fry I woke up with energy and enthusiasm.  I have to eat it cold some days as I don’t have time to heat it.  But every time I ate it I was thrilled.  Partly because of the taste and partly because I was consciously eating healthy food.  Food, when consumed repairs, restores and regenerates.  How exciting.
