My love language is food.
I make lots of foods that I barely eat. It’s not that I’m on any specific diet, it’s that I get way more pleasure from making foods, like this Pumpkin Bundt Cake, than I do from eating it.
That’s what I’ve come to find out about myself – I like talking about food, going to markets & seeing fresh food, making food to show people I care, watching them eat food, looking at endless pictures of food, & I’ll admit it, even smelling food. But the eating of it?
I get full quickly. Sugars & many alcohols make me feel yucky – like poisoned & jittery & make me have nightmares. I don’t eat pork. I don’t eat shellfish. I don’t mix meat & milk. Red meat makes my tummy a mess…
I think sometimes that I must sound like a real food snob about how our family prefers to make everything we eat (even our yogurt) instead of buying food products at a store & I wish I could blurt out “That’s because lots of those foods make me feel like crap”!
So please don’t think I’m trying to sound all high & mighty, I just don’t see any problem with showing love for myself by only feeding me stuff that makes me feel good.
I am planning on eating amazing French Fries dipped in Tzatziki for dinner…
