    Dealing with food cravings + the temptation of takeout

    I caved after work today and got a donair. Within ten minutes, the intense stomach pain hit and I am still dealing with discomfort, pain, and bloating six hours later, to the extent that I can't get to sleep.

    I really struggle with consistently maintaining a diet that helps me feel good for a few reasons:

    1) The constant, insistent message from my parents when I was growing up that if a food item is "good for you," then you should always eat it. Right now, food items that are certainly healthy like broccoli, chickpeas, and olive oil are actually *not* good for me and it is hard to shut off that voice in my head from my childhood.

    2) After living in a number of different countries and traveling to dozens more, I have developed a love for world cuisine. Due to dietary limitations, I simply can't cook a lot of those dishes for myself, but sometimes, when I'm having a bad day, all I want is a bite of one of those delicious meals that transports me back to a better time. So I order take out. And then I have an experience like with the donair.

    I guess this post is about the varied meanings of nourishment for different people. I am still trying to develop a healthy concept of nourishment for myself, and I am grateful for this group.

    Quiet Sunday

    Did some kitchen chores but took walk@8a in 35 degree weather to turn in bottles and cans for money 💰💰.Used my salad shooter machine to slice lots of carrots. Enjoyed the down time. Refilled hummingbirds feeder. No Stress!.
    My goal for this weekend was self care and I succeeded. Did get my bed stripped and remade. My caregiver has Thursday off for the holiday. She dyes my hair MAGENTA about every 6 weeks, before my haircut. Going to see if we can do it tomorrow.
    Reason I do MAGENTA is that I am 17 yr Breast Cancer Survivor. It makes me feel better.

    Dinner tonight

    This is how I have been cooking chicken breast lately:

    This method has you bake the chicken breast in the oven, covered in parchement paper. They always come out juicy this way. You can put in whatever fresh herbs or other seasons you like too. Tonight I did it with some fresh thyme, some sprigs of sage and some lemon wedges. I also roasted some delicate squash and Brussels sprouts for sides. I just have to cut up the veggies and then the oven does most of the work. #ChronicDepression #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Depression #Selfcare #Nourishment #MentalHealth
