We are all creatures of habit. Let’s take inventory. What do you eat or drink habitually? We each lead very different lives and food and drink are faithful medicines that help ease the runaway train of emotions we feel on a daily basis.
There’s caffeine for when we feel sluggish, cigarettes and comfort food for when we are nervous, a cola to keep us company while driving in the car, ice cream for late at night when we’re bored. Name the emotion and there just might be a food or beverage that routinely piggybacks right along with it.
Looking back on your history, what you were fed as a child, and whether or not you learned how to soothe yourself and manage your emotions, predisposed you to the eating habits you have now. Simply put, we like what we like because of how we were raised.
