“You don’t eat meat?!”
“How do you get protein?”
These are two questions that I get asked on a regular basis. I’m not sure why it’s difficult for people to comprehend. Maybe because I’m still fat. But meat isn’t necessarily unhealthy so that’s not the reason I stopped eating it. Find the reason here. For the record, I’m still fat because I eat a bunch of other bad things like ice cream pints (in one sitting), buttery homemade pizza dough and cheesy pasta to name a few.
We all know that you can learn a lot about a person by looking through their internet browser history (note to self: update will with specific instructions about this).
Anyway, another method to see into a person is to go through their camera roll. Phones are generally password protected and therefore can carry a lot of insight of a person’s mental. I gave you a glimpse into my thoughts before, but here are my 10 most recent camera photos.
I like to eat things that are bad for me *lowers head in shame*. But I also want to live a long life free of health complications and medication. One thing I started doing years ago is making sure I always have breakfast. Today I’m sharing my current fave with you. I’ve been making my own pancakes from scratch and they’re way healthier than the box formulas that I was raised on.
I’ve cooked more in the past four months than I have my whole adult life. Growing up, and even as a woman, my mom and grandma tried instilling in me how important it was for a woman to know how to cook. Eh, wasn’t my thing. But I started to fall in love with the kitchen last year. It happened organically and in my own way. Sine then I’ve learned of gadgets like the salad spinner – got one, not crazy about it. Seriously, send me your address, you can have it. I only used it once.
Since the January 1st, I’ve been seeing posts everywhere about creating healthier habits. It’s all the buzz every new year! I’m nowhere near 100% as far as clean eating but I’ve gotten much better over time. One question I always get is “Why don’t you eat meat?” My black card is automatically revoked when I say I don’t eat chicken. And I’m assumed to be Muslim when I say I don’t do pork.
But lately I’ve been getting questions from people who want to eat less meat. If you’re on the fence about making a similar change, maybe my experience will help.
