I’ve been thinking…I’m a food snob. Yup, I said it. A while ago, I wrote a blog post, “Grocery Shopping No-Nos” in which I was not ready to admit to my snobbish ways, but as time has progressed my snobbishness has increased. The way I see it, there is nothing wrong with me turning my nose up to packaged, highly caloric, so-called processed food.
I’ve decided to take a stand. I say no to the crap that dominates the aisles of the supermarket. I stay clear of food that is advertised and put together in fancy little packages with a long list of ingredients mostly preservatives, and sugars. For goodness sake, I do not let strangers prepare my food. I prepare and eat fresh, whole food that you can picture growing in it’s natural state (Thanks, for that one Michael Pollan).
I’m willing to pay the price for my health and well-being up front. I make my health and food a priority. I take the extra-time I need to shop and prepare food. Real food. I really don’t see any other way. So from this day forward, I proudly declare myself as a food snob. Heck, I’m even contemplating starting a food snob movement: A bunch of health crazed folks purchasing, growing, preparing, and eating fresh, whole food. Hmm…stay tuned.
