I wasn’t raised a healthy eater. I mean, we never had soda in the house or really terrible junk food, but my mom was a hard-working woman, and typically after-school snacks were prepared by me or my brother.Like any kid would do, we opted for pretzels and tortilla chips, frozen pizza bites, packaged cookies, grilled cheese, or ordering pizza or Chinese food— you get the idea.
In college, while still eating poorly and going up on the scale, I started thinking more about indulgences in society, how food is portrayed to us in the media, and what the food we are eating is eating. I think I partially became more interested in this because I constantly had horrible stomach aches, hormone and skin issues, and other ailments. Though I wasn’t ready to change my lifestyle at the time (wish I could give my twenty-year-old self a kick in the butt), I did start educating myself and thinking about the food we are consuming and its affect on society and our bodies.
During that time, I cut out meat for over a year. I couldn’t afford good-quality meat at the time and I thought this was a good solution. Makes sense, right? Wrong!
