I have no specific way of eating, I have come to that conclusion. I go through phases of cooking and eating. I've been through a canning phase, a Greek food phase, a vegan phase, a slow cooker phase, a sauce phase, a make your own dressing phase. I
can't just focus on one aspect of food, there is too much to experience and learn and EAT! That's probably why I never could go on any fad diets or subscribe to any one style of eating...I get bored- I am too curious as to what else there is to make an eat.
I can't just eat one type of way. It's just not in my nature to stay put. I have to move, I have to investigate. Every season has new foods for me, every market, every store, every aisle. There are so many spices to try, so many fruits and vegetables to try,
so many types of noodles, so many flavors of butter and so many kinds of jams and cheese. The world is a delicious place, having boundaries sucks! I know there are things that are indulgences too, of course, but I WILL eat them sometimes. I WILL eat deep fried
pickles at the State Fair and I WILL eat a foot long corn dog- why? Because it's once every summer and it's delicious. Yes, at Christmas time I will eat peppermint truffles- yes, in Fall I will eat pumpkin pie, and yes, in summer I will have soft serve ice
cream on a waffle cone! I will also gobble up all of the asparagus and strawberries of spring, peaches and watermelon of summer, butternut squash and corn of Autumn, and the sweet potatoes and clementines of winter. I will also have a chocolate dipped oreo
cookie and a glass of almond milk. I will make my own ricotta cheese, experiment with steel cut oats, try home-made toffee. I can eat whatever I want, the key is moderation, not starvation...not deprivation. EAT, DRINK and BE HAPPY! It's life, why spend all
of your time wishing you could have a cookie when you can have a cookie? Healthy means so much more than just saying "no" to food.
