I ate non-kosher food, is G-d upset at me?

G-d loves you and wants only the best for you. It bothers Him greatly when you do something which is detrimental to your wellbeing, just as any parent would be upset at his/her child for starting to smoke, or driving recklessly.


Being that food nourishes and sustains, it is in one's best interest to follow a proper diet. For the Jew, a proper diet is a Kosher one, and non-Kosher food is considered  "unhealthy" for the`Jewish soul. So, if non-Kosher food is eaten, the necessary measures of repentance need to be taken to rectify the damage that has been done.

Kosher
Literally means "fit." Commonly used to describe foods which are permitted by Jewish dietary laws, but is also used to describe religious articles (such as a Torah scroll or Sukkah) which meet the requirements of Jewish law.
G-d
It is forbidden to erase or deface the name of G-d. It is therefore customary to insert a dash in middle of G-d's name, allowing us to erase or discard the paper it is written on if necessary.
