what WAS in your fridge?
These days when we invite people over to eat, if they know us at all, they know to expect something healthy. A few years ago that was certainly NOT the case. As adults James and I have had to decide for ourselves what it is that we feel comfortable putting into our bodies on a daily basis. It has definitely been a process. We obviously did not start out knowing what we know now. It has involved lots of studying, questioning, experimenting, etc. Over the years my ideas of health and nutrition have changed many times.
Here is what is on my mind right now: My parents’ fridge when I was a child. What was in it? Let me show you….
and of course, TONS of these.
I mean TONS. We actually never ran out of either of these items. I grew up in a very kid-friendly neighborhood. All of my friends as well as my brother’s knew that they could always get a frozen pizza and Big K at our house so my mom continued to keep them stocked. I can remember summer days when I would literally have a Big K and pizza for lunch and then repeat at dinner time. YIKES! I won’t even begin to break down the ingredients in these items. That would just be depressing for me to think of how much of it I actually put into my body.
The great news is though what is done is done, it is not too late for us to make changes. So we have. I still love pizza. I just choose to make my own with incredible ingredients and only eat it sparingly.
So, what WAS in your fridge? Leave a comment telling me what the staples were in your house growing up. Do you still eat the same way? Or have you made changes?
