The next time you're craving pizza
Several years back, Jason and I shared the most delicious pizza dinner.
We sat at a table underneath a big window at a restaurant down the street from my house.
As we chatted over the course of an hour or two, we watched people on the street, enjoying the last bits of a beautiful southern California summer day.
We devoured a big pizza and a pile of fresh arugula salad drizzled in olive oil, lemon juice and shaved parmesan cheese.
I don’t remember the toppings, I just remember it was one of the best pizzas of my life.
The next day, I woke up knowing what I wanted for dinner…another one of those pizzas. So that night, I went back and ordered the same thing.
But it didn’t taste nearly as good.
I called Jason, and told him.
He laughed, and said, “Of course, not. Last night was a whole experience.”
For years after, I watched myself fall into the same trap over and over again of trying to recreate pleasurable experiences with the food from those experiences.
And, it never worked.
Now, I don’t do that as much. And when I do I notice, and laugh, and tune into what I really want to eat.
There is so much that goes into the way food tastes and makes us feel, that has nothing to do with the food itself.
When you become aware of these patterns, you start to see the forest for the trees.
When you see the big picture, you can make big changes…with less effort.
You’re no longer a pawn in your unconscious mind’s game.
Being healthy stops being about avoiding this or that, or counting calories, or trying hard. And becomes a sport of sorts. Challenging at first, becomes easier and more fun, the more you play.
