Poll Therapy food

Just for fun.

Sometimes people talk about “eating our sessions.” Is there a specific food you turn to after a session for comfort or recovery or reward? Cake, ice cream, etc. What is it?

Me? Egg bagel with peanut butter.

I often turn to food to fill the void. Nothing else seems to work quite as well in five minute increments. I can eat a whole packet of mints in one sitting, which probably isn't good for me, but I also have chilli cashew nuts on hand.

I eat before session, so I'm not hungry afterward.

Now my therapy appointments are late like 6:30 or 7 PM so I have eaten beforehand. When I used to have morning appointments I would sometimes have Japanese afterwards. Kit

Default Re: Therapy food

When I was in therapy.. I used to eat fast food after every session. I labeled it French Fry Tuesday because my sessions were on Tuesdays.

I used to grab a cupcake and sugar-y coffee from Starbucks.... now I'm trying to eat healthier so I eat fruit. Blech. I can't eat before though so I'm usually starving when I get done.
