I love food. Sometimes eating certain foods makes me feel happy, anxious, satisfied, stressed, good or sad. One day, I’m all about eating only the right kinds of food and I decide to eat raw food for a while. Kale, chia seeds, overnight oats, dates, juicing, abundance. Then the next, I decide, what the heck, I love italian food! Homemade pasta, ciabatta, prosciutto, mozzarella, moderation.One day I enjoy a full glass of nice cold cow milk with a greek yogurt and there are times when I only drink almond-milk and eat coconut yogurt. I get inspired by anyone who eats raw or follows an 80/10/10 lifestyle. I also get inspired by those who eat rich and hearty meals. Sometimes I ask myself why don’t I become vegan for myself, for my health? And then I think no. I’m well informed. I know what eating animal products does to my body and to the animals. I know what what repercussions cooking foods has on my body and on the nutrients. That’s when I think to myself: is like that one friend who is slightly annoying, a little bitchy, a bit negative and yes, somewhat selfish. Being with that friend 24/7 would be bad for your health and your mind. But you are well aware that every time you hangout with that friend you have a hell of a good time and you are both very happy to see each other and enjoy eachother’s company. You have great memories together and everytime you reunite you love it. In the moment, you are glad to be alongside that friend. Cows’ milk, smoked salmon or that 90% cocoa chocolate bar, is just like that. Eating them everyday wouldn’t be the best for you. But consuming them now and then is a whole other story. I personally think that in life, it’s all about finding a good balance. You wouldn’t give up that friendship with that friend just because he or she has a few flaws that you forget about everytime you meet again, would you?
Yep, I just compared chocolate to friends.
And yep, my opinion is constantly changing.
