Health Goals in a World of Choices

Cravings, desire, curiosity, availability

I remember, during my last food shopping trip, I stood in front of the cheese section completely baffled by my inability to make a choice.

  • want to try something new.
  • desire a new experience, perhaps a new brand, a new variety or a new mix.

There you are, in front of the cheese section and all you see is cheese:

Asiago – Baby Swiss – Blue,Brie, or Camembert – Gorgenzola or Roquefort – Berg or Butter – Emmentaler, Farmers, or Gouda – Swiss or Mondseer – Mozzarella or Feta – Muenster or Monterey Jack – Parmigiano Reggiano, Pecorino Romano or Grana Padano – Chévrer – Manchego – Gruyére – Provolone – Ricotta or Goat – Colby – Stilton – Halloumi – Rocamado –  Livarot – Saint-Paulin – Saint- Marcellin – Tomme de Savoie – Saint Albray – …and and many many moreContinue reading

being able to satisfy instant appetite or lust

?????

would life really be sooo terrible?
