THE JOY OF EATING.

How often during the course of the day do you think about food and eating? It is natural when you wake up in the morning to think about what you will be having for breakfast - then a little later it is lunch, then dinner and probably an after dinner snack. There could also be snacks between meals. Even if you are not a foodie, eating is necessary for survival. I know that some of us enjoy eating so much that we sometimes consume more than we should. Eating - one of life's simple pleasures. So which meal of the day would be your favorite - and what do you enjoy eating mostly at that meal? My favorite meal is breakfast, simply because I break my fast after last eating at 5p.m. the previous day - with no nighttime snacks. When morning comes, I am really hungry. I would have either cereal, fruit, coffee or tea with some kind of sandwich or a local dish.

It is nice to be able to eat what you want - some of us have very restrictive diets.

@Kandae11 Well, I do think everyone should watch what they eat (but it's easier to eat it than watch it ). Everyone can always eat better .

One health expert believes that the less we eat the longer we live.

Many prefer the evening meal - probably because that is the most relaxing time of day.

@Kandae11 plus being the meal we tend to take more care preparing rather than just throwing together

Lately, since I'm limited to what I can do with one arm in a sling, my main focus has been on my daily shower and what we'll eat for dinner! In fact, husband's on the way back now with a hamburger steak with mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, rolls, and sweet tea from a local restaurant.

We should eat to live and not live to eat, but I adore food. I'm a foodie, and therefore love every meal if it is delicious, organic, fresh, and presented beautifully.

Eating healthy is the best bet, but some decadent treats could be so tempting. Anyway, healthy or unhealthy - where food is concerned - less is always best.

Yeah, breakfast is my favorite. When I can I like eggs, sausage and hash browns but if not I'll settle for smoked salmon and potato soup.

Smoked salmon sounds great - I should try that in a sandwich.

Lunch. I love anything lunch. But I do not think about food all day, That is someone who is addicted to food, I usually eat when I am hungry. I tend to skip breakfast more than any meal, I just am not hungry when I wake up.

When I used the word foodie I was reminded of a Bubblews member who went by that name. Wonder if he or she is still writing.

Breakfast is my heaviest meal - now that I work from home. Dinner or supper is usually very light.

I think I can be consider a foodie maybe because one of the reasons can be I don't like wasting food lol and also because I do like good meals. Maybe my favorite meal could be dinner because that's where the good meal is lol. Sometimes lunch can be the meal of the day we have a good meal that we don't eat dinner. I do like eating some small snacks every now and then though but only when we don't eat big meals lol.
