Food or Flavor?

I did the "300 work out" again yesterday. Workouts like that definitely create an appetite for me. So after waiting for about an hour, I ate a BIG breakfast. Scrambled eggs, 2 strips of bacon and half a butternut squash.
Lunch was scheduled with customers and walking into the restaurant at 1:00, I was salivating. I was starving. The lunch was at Ted's. Good paleo place to eat, but lots of temptations if you're not careful. So here's a little trick I use when I go out somewhere AND I'm hungry. While walking from the car to the restaurant, I decide what I'm going to eat and when I sit down, I don't even look at the menu. So had a huge salad with a bison burger on top. Dressing was evoo. I was stuffed.
At around 6:30 pm I got hungry. But was it really hunger? I'm sure I had stuffed my body with enough calories in the 2 meals I had for the day. What I was craving was some flavor. Some comfort perhaps. So I made a small very flavorful veggie dish.

Bok Choy, garlic, chicken stock, coconut milk, orange pepper and green curry. Saute the garlic in coconut oil, add couple of splashes of chicken stock, add some coconut milk, then add 1/2 tsp of green curry paste. Let it come to soft boil, add the bokchoy and turn down the heat to medium. I diced a small piece of orange pepper for color. It hit the spot and I did not even eat the whole thing. A few bites of great flavor satisfied my "hunger".

"'s good for you"
