2) buffer foods –
Some foods spark us to want more. Others minimize the desire to cave in.
Trigger Foods are what can potentially derail our greater intentions. (The smell of fast food, ice cream, fresh baked goods, etc)
Buffer Foods, however, will satisfy us while turning off or at least limiting our drive to derailment. They are our safety net.
Examples are independent to the person, but may include:
– a tablespoon of almond butter (careful, it’s not a buffer if a taste turns into a tub or you feel guilty)
– a glass of almond milk
– some blanched or steamed green beans
– a hard boiled egg
What are your unique Buffer and Trigger foods?
