Food Ruts

August 7, 2011

We’ve all done it. Gotten into a food habit where all we want to eat falls into the same category of snacks or meals. You know you’ve done it. Ordered Creme Brûlée at EVERY meal for a a month or had the same exact beer with dinner no matter where you go.

Well, I’m not immune either and am likely one of the world’s worst offenders when it comes to mood foods and their longevity. Mine might even go beyond the usual because my inclination is to find a perfect meal and keep replicating it.

Take, for instance, my ongoing obsession with sushi. I don’t eat it at every meal anymore, but I do tend to find a way to enjoy raw fish on a regular basis.

I’m not sure what causes this phenomena, but it’s got to have some basis in our comfort ties to meals. *I’ve also gone through my steak, burger, burrito, BBQ and noodle phases – so it can change.

What is on your mood-food menu these days? Feel free to link back to your blog and your photos of those meals.
