Food is nourishes the body, mind and soul.
Consider the type of food. F you are eating caviar, it could represent expense, luxury, and extravagance.
If it is a sandwich, perhaps you are “sandwiched” in a situation right now.
Traditional culture food represents nostalgia, depending on what the food means to you and when you usually eat that type of food.
For example, if you are looking forward to Christmas and it is only April, you may find yourself dreaming about eggnog or cookies.
