I stumbled upon a video about one of my favorite writers Nora Ephron. She did an interview with Charlie Rose discussing last meals.
I love overall message on a deeper level. It has even widened my perspective regarding last meals to overall cravings. What she meant by last meals is that you should eat it every chance you get till the day you die. You never know when your last day will come. So it’s always important to eat that one thing you love more than anything in the world.
I know my last meal is and I take my opportunity to eat it every chance I get.
Not only that, but it’s also inspired me to eat whatever it is that I’m craving every single day. If I wake up one day craving a burger, I will stop by a place and buy a burger. If I am craving fried chicken, I will stop by Kennedy and order my traditional fried chicken meal from that spot. This applies to my three-square meals and snacks I consume on the side.
This is physical proof of me showing that I am not affected by the world when it comes to discussing diets, carbs, starch, calories, etc. I personally refuse to have my food consumption limited. I know my body inside and out, and I will never resist any food temptation.
A lot of people don’t realize that there can be so much satisfaction towards oneself when you go with your cravings. It might be temporary, but you will feel grateful in the end that you’re eating what your heart, mind, and stomach desires on that very day/night.
You only live once. Go with whatever it is you’re craving on that day, and enjoy yourselves.
