change everything needs to spend her time more wisely
I want to eat less meat. I want to eat purposefully (rather than just eating a brownie when it’s set in front of me for no good reason).
I want to think ahead so I have good options every day. I want to balance fruits with vegetables. I want to support local growers without only eating lettuce in May (which is the only thing I can guy locally in May).
I’m a big fan of Michael Pollan. The Omnivore’s Dilemma was the best non-fiction book I’ve ever read, and I never really thought about food before that. I struggle with how I want to eat now. I want to eat well, but I also want to eat when I’m hungry. I struggle with this from a weight/caloric perspective, more on a overall healthful, ethical perspective.
It’s frustrating because it never goes away. There is always thinking to be done about food, because it needs to be a part of your life about three times a day.
So before I can figure out if I’m eating how I want to eat, I first need to figure out how I want to eat.
