So I was thinking about something Holly mentioned in the comments yesterday — about focusing on temperatures and textures of foods and how it’s helped her with intuitive eating.
Between this past weekend with my BFF visiting, and today with co-workers, I’ve had several lattes — a treat I hadn’t drank in months ($$$) and now realize how much I’ve missed.
Because it’s been cold and rainy, the hot, steamy lattes (skim, SF vanilla/SF rasp for anyone who cares!) have been my saving grace.
They’ve also been from local coffee joints (so I feel good about helping to sustain the local craptastic Michigan economy!), and they have boosted my mood so much that I couldn’t help but notice the difference.
Warm foods and drinks just make us feel good. And because of this, I can’t wait for fall … I love it; it’s my favorite time of year.
I miss my morning bowl of oats (I eat overnight oats during summer–Greek yogurt, oats, blueberries, milk, honey) and now that the fall is almost here, I have a feeling I’ll be partaking in more lattes, as well!
Have a safe, happy and healthy weekend! Be back Monday!
How about you? Do you notice a mood change based on food/drink choices?
