Yes, we eat to make us feel comfort and happiness. Years ago many people were not informed about good health from eating, and only ate what they were accustomed to. I know people who ate the same menu every week and their grandchildren explained that if it was Tuesday, it would always be a certain soup. If you are down or depressed you want something like fat food or chocolate which seems to cheer you up, until too much bloats your tummy. I go for change, variety, and unusual meals and it seems to improve my attitude.
Food is my friend, my inspiration, and contributed to my sense of achievement and success. Lack of fresh veggies makes me cranky.
It helps to stretch our minds, and seek new adventures in foods. Learning can be exciting at times. I understand. Dorisena
