I am not a Food Snob!

Monday, July 21, 2008

So I have spent a great deal of time, energy, will-power, and soul searching in my pursuit to make clean eating my lifestyle. I have suceeded to in not only the ablity to to make clean food decisions as a habit, but even find myself finding alot of unclean food gross, particularly when i imagine it in my body rather than just tasting it on my tongue.

Now I face myself with a new deliema. I find myself alone, without a community within physical reach (rather than electronic) that I can share clean habits with. I enjoy my clean menu, but find myself defending my choice to eat my packed lunch and not eat at Chick File. I want to talk about a new veggie stir fry or whole grain I tried, but instead of interest ai am met with gagging and childish yelps "EWWWW!" Ugh, grow up.

I am not a food snob! I have had the pleasure to taste fresh, clean food that way God has intended it to be and found it rather delicious. Fresh is truly the best. With all the research in not only diet and weight lose and maintenance, but also physical performance, wellness, aging and other factors why polute your body? Why not give clean eating a chance? Why discourage another's choice and remark negativel And most importantly why judge another person's choice by calling them a name? My choice to do my best to keep my figure, my health, as well as my family? Grrr Maybe being a food snob is not such a bad thing. I don't allow 'junk' into my body.

    Ugh, I've run into the same thing!! I'm not a snob, I've just learned what I like to put in my body - I'm not trying to convert anyone! I think people get overly defensive when they feel threatened (like they know they're not eating right, they just don't want to admit it or are a little embarrassed). It's just like when you tell people you're trying to lose weight and they try to discourage you or aren't supportive.

    Those people are annoying, but just forget them - anyone who is childish enough to wrinkle their nose at your vegetables isn't worth your time!! (Seriously, that's so rude!!)
