I think the best part about this salad was that it was so different from my usual lunch time salads. I purposely bought arugula and bleu cheese for salads this week, but I threw this together today without much forethought and found it surprisingly satisfying.
So satisfying in fact, that it got me thinking; sometimes I think I’m craving something sweet or some kind of treat, when actually what I’m craving is variety. What I’m actually hungry for is something new, something different.
I think it can be easy to mistake cravings for boredom or a need for stimulation. This was good reminder on the importance of asking yourself what you’re really hungry for , especially when you find yourself rummaging through the cupboards for a treat or snack even though you’re not truly hungry. The answer might be something completely unrelated to food – perhaps some other, underlying need altogether that you need to address.
This concludes today’s lunch time contemplation. Salmon, bleu cheese and arugla make a great salad! No need to ponder that.
