Food for Your Mood

Spaghetti
Do you crave certain foods depending on your mood? Everyone is different, but maybe some of us share the following mind-gut connections!
What you eat when you’re…
Happy
Pretty much anything. After all, you’re happy and feel like nothing can go wrong – including dinner.
Excited
A snack, appetizer, or tapa. When you’re excited about something, you don’t care too much about eating. But who could turn down a few bites of fish dip or a tasty slider?
Sad
Now this one is different for everyone. Some people don’t want to eat when they’re sad. Others prefer comfort foods – maybe something you ate since you were little. How about homemade grilled cheese, or drowning your sorrows in a bowl of spaghetti?
Angry 
Something spicy. Buffalo wings, and some blue cheese to cool it (and you) down a bit.
Anxious
Similar to sad-mood food, this one can go either way. Most likely, if you’re super anxious about something, your hunger switch is turned to “off”.
Curious
Something exotic. A new type of ethnic food, or something you’ve never had like goat, alligator, or rabit. Or if you’re not into meat, then kale, quinoa, or seaweed.
Bored
The worst time to eat (for your waistline anyway)! When you’re bored you’d eat pretty much anything, and any amount.
Inspired
When you’re inspired, maybe you’ll cook up a new kitchen creation, snap a photo, and post your pride on facebook!

9 Ways to Know You’re Spending Too Much on Food

I’m on a list post kick, so here goes…
1. You go to Starbucks, ever.
But it’s so good.
Coffee
2. You can’t figure out why your savings account isn’t growing 
(and you don’t take lavish trips, buy high-end clothes, or have all the latest electronics).
Piggy
3. You cringe at the thought of purchasing a $40 shirt, but have no problem selecting the $40 filet at an upscale steakhouse.
Because it’s totally worth it.

4. You’ve become a regular at the lunch cafe in your office building.
Unless you work for Google, we’re assuming you dish out at least 10 bucks a day there.
Lunch
5. One time you packed your lunch.
That one time.
Brown Bag
6. You are in awe of people who eat to live, rather than live to eat.
They chomp on granola bars while composing reports, throw back some raisins and call it a lunch. Dinner is optional.

7. Going out to dinner is one of your favorite activities.
Maybe most favorite.
Restaurant
8. You’ve never used a restaurant deal or discount.
You’ve heard of them but it’s too much work to find one you want when you want it.
