Appetite

I have had absolutely no appetite for the last few days.  The interesting thing about having a food blog is I was able to look back at my previous posts, as I remember losing my appetite some time last year.  Turns out it was around the same time of year as now, when the weather was starting to become spring-like.  I go from craving hearty meals to not really wanting to think about food.

The hubby made some trout yesterday and I roasted some mushrooms, zucchini and golden beets.  

 

I ended up leaving quite a bit on my plate as although it was delicious, I just wasn't interested.  Today for lunch I could barely finish a bowl of soup.  That tells me only one thing - hibernation time must be over!  

Do you find that your appetite changes with the seasons?   
Is it a mild change, or quite dramatic like mine?

Yum- your dinner looks fabulous. Golden beets just taste better because of the color :)

My normal appetite usually gets lighter in the summer as well. Right now all bets are off!

ha, I don't think I EVER lose my appetite but what I crave definitely changes with the seasons!

I am having the opposite problem right now! I feel like I am going through a growth spurt at age 31 as I feel hungry all the time! I am not gaining weight (and am not over eating, really) so I am not too concerned about it. I do tend to crave food less when the temps warm up. Especially when it's hot - then I really tend to have no appetite and basically force myself to eat dinner because I know my body needs food..

That dinner looks delish!

Ha ha, I'm not like that at all. :) Or at least I haven't really noticed patterns in my eating - I crave soups and stews all summer long, raw veggies have just as much appeal in the winter, and my appetite is always big! But who knows, maybe I just don't notice. But hibernation IS over, I'm sure - this week (especially the weekend) has been SO warm!

Mine also changes, but in more of the "I want colder foods" in the summer and warmer foods in the winter.

I think I notice a mild change, but I'm almost always hungry. haha.

Your dinner looks delicous! I definitely have less of an appetite when the weather warms up. Is it weird that I am literally counting down the days until the farmer's market has all my favorite veggies back?

Absolutely I lose my appetite when the sun is out and spring is in the air!! Unless I'm heading out to Korea house... then I got my appetite. he he

I love beets! I've never cooked them though - they seem complicated?

My appetite sort of varies with my work schedule - which has nothing to do with the lack of seasons here in Los Angeles!
