Food rules & MY motto
I have been trying to lose the habit of calling any certain food "good or bad", but sometimes I still ask myself "how will I feel after eating this" I know that if I eat certain foods now that later on I will feel bloated, have a stomache, have the runs and seem to live in the bathroom for a week straight and in some cases (mainly from to much sodium)~makes my lips feel numb & swollen
My motto is it should be tasty, healthy, and most of all quick & easy to prepare. When I open some raw cookbooks and find a recipe with a page long worth of ingredients or even short recipes that require the use of a food processor, blender, juicer and dehydrator all for 1 recipe, I ask myself, “Do they really expect me to spend that much time just to eat?” Then I think of all of the time it will take to wash all the dishes and I give up. Are they kidding?
I'm not really into mono-eating (but do like to keep it that simple)...well except maybe I could live on fruit for a whole day, but not just 1 kind. And I'm usually to lazy to make up fancy recipes for the fruit. Funny how some people will look surprised when I'm walking around the small general store here and all I have in the cart is a whole bunch of produce...someone will ask what I'm gonna do with it all
