Food in dreams represents the type and qualities of experience or energy you take in your life. How certain situations are effecting you. Each food has a unique experience or energy associated with it based of your opinions, feelings, or memories of the specific food.
Certain food symbols tend to be more universal (e.g. apples or oatmeal), while others (e.g. processed food or junk food) take on a much more personal meaning based on your personal feelings about those foods. You need to ask yourself what stands out the most about a certain type of food and see how those qualities apply to your current life situation.
Generally, fruit is symbolic of thoughts that make you feel good, vegetables more nourishing qualities, and meat symbolic about qualities that are more sustaining.
