Reflections upon breaking my fast OR I missed food!

"You have no idea" by Sam Brown of

Don’t get me wrong. The fasting was good for me. It helped me focus and revitalized me. Dropping a pants size didn’t hurt, either.

But I would be a liar if I said the whole thing was dandy. No, I wasn’t particularly hungry. No, I never felt weak or sick. Yes, I was tired sometimes.

But the main thing is I. Missed. Food.

Specifically, I missed…

… Chewing
… Textures
… Salt
… Pepper
… Crunch
… Different favors with each bite
… Dinner-time interruptions from my ill-behaved, needy cat
… Reading recipes
… Cooking
… Utensils
… Cloth napkins in my lap
… Using my dining table for its intended purpose
… Spice
… Leafy greens
… Warm food
… Grains
… Being social
… Wine

I could probably go on, but that’s the list I made as I was eating my first meal. Yay for food!
