Now I listen to my body and follow what it tells me. Above all, I personally believe in moderation and variety. When you stop eating certain foods, your body can gain an intolerance to it. Even foods that are good for you like fruits and vegetables. I have seen it happen with my own eyes.
I eat meat! I bake with evil GLUTEN. I love cheese. Just because I eat meat, does not mean I don’t eat vegetables. I love vegetables but do not enjoy them when put them into smoothies. I do not make everything from scratch, although I would like to. I drink dairy milk. Not soy or rice or almond. (Although So Nice Vanilla is pretty good.) Today I drink milk from a REAL cow! Seafood is divine in my books, especially shellfish. I want to learn more about butchering and cooking with meat this year. I do not go to fancy gourmet grocers very often. (Although I would like to.) I shop in a regular grocery store like most people. I sometimes use shortening and… foodie gods help me… margarine!
These are all my personal choices and I respect everyone’s choices when it comes to all aspects of life, especially food. We do not need yet another way to be judgmental of each other.
Yummy blessings to everyone’s kitchen in 2013!
