My lunch on Friday

There’s something just a little bit opulent about taking yourself out to eat. And I don’t mean to your usual fast food joint serving soulless food….I mean going to a proper restaurant with the best food, made by a chef that uses the best ingredients and creates dishes that are a work of art. The effort and love put into creating a beautiful plate of food is transferred to you. It makes the food extra tasty and extra nourishing. Recovery is about nourishment of mind, body and spirit. It’s about feeling deserving and grateful and satisfied with the present moment. Sitting there alone allowing yourself to feel utterly extravagant and without the distraction of conversation to dull your experience of eating this exquisite food, you taste every sumptuous bite. Each delicate flavour expertly chosen all for you! Order whatever you want! Appreciate smell, taste and texture. Pure joy. Go on….take yourself out to eat!

Yep! I had dessert too!

  2. I did this last year for Easter and had one of the best meals ever. I was able to just take in the scenery and really taste the food. Thanks for reminding me!

    Thanks for this reminder of treating ourselves well. It is so nice to take myself out to dinner. Its been a while. I go for lunch and sit outside in the spring and fall on occasion. But a really nice dinner~ with a great chef and ambiance of all the scenes~ Wow, what a great act of self love! Xo Kat
