What Foods Make You Feel Good?

7 posts in this topic

Have any of you noticed there are certain foods that leave you with a sense of well-being after you eat them?

This morning I had a scramble of eggs, leftover lemon potatoes that I'd cooked for Easter, and fresh spinach. Afterward, I just felt good... don't know if it was the overall dish, or the starchy veg content, or what. But it was a pleasant way to start my day.

I also get the same feeling after eating fresh salmon, pan-seared in ghee.

What's your clean, feel good food?

I feel very annoyed to say this, but dark leafy greens really make me feel good. And I don't even like them that much!!!!!!!!!!!! But yeah, especially collards and rainbow chard (which are mild enough that I can cook them down and eat plenty without being too bothered) make me feel really good after I eat them.

It's so annoying. Everybody who speaks about nutrition from any viewpoint whatsoever talks about the importance of the dark leafy greens. Grrr And it's true.  Grrr :D

Tilapia with broccolini and blackberries! Oh my goodness, I always feel amazing after eating berries and lean meats make my heart soar. Broccolini is just my favorite vegetable, so I'm always happy when eating it! :)

Asian fish soup - I use my own chicken stock and pour the hot soup over raw greens or zucchini cut to resemble noodles.  Lots of ginger, lots of garlic, raw cilantro and finely diced hot peppers on top.

I feel best when I get lots of starchy veggies, especially at breakfast. And yes, there's something very satisfying about kale sauteed in lovely bacon!

I feel good after eating beef (not ground beef though) with lots of different greens and zucchini or yellow squash.  I totally get a food high!
