I also take this opportunity to share a throwback picture so you can either laugh
|I look the same, right?|
I read an awesome post this week from The T-Rex Runner called, "I eat Dirty, and I like it." It is a really great post about eating what you want and feeling no-guilt about your choices, even if everyone in your Facebook feed is posting their latest paleo recipes, and all the dinner plate pics on Instagram are of vegan, gluten-free fare. The problem, she explains, is not that someone chooses to eat a certain way, it is the judgement against those who do not. I'll quote from her post:
"So y’all, eat clean if you want. Be paleo. Don’t eat sugar by choice (GOD, WHY?). Go vegan. Only eat fish and things that are purple. I personally don’t care. But if you need me, I’ll be the girl with a craft beer in one hand and a cheeseburger in the other after every marathon, so don’t feel bad if you’re right there with me."It sort of reminded me of a post I wrote called Why I am No Longer Eating Clean, so I was inspired to share it again for this month's throwback Thursday. My post was about not wanting to push my dietary restrictions (of the time) onto my readers (or anyone, really). I felt that when I once published a list of my good and bad foods, that I made a big mistake because frankly, everyone is different. There are no good and bad foods that apply to everyone. What is good for me, may be bad for you. What I consider bad for me, might be the highlight of your diet, and that is just fine.

On a side note, while I was writing this post, I went back over to The T-Rex Runner's blog to get the links and I.Couldn't.Stop.Reading. This post took me much longer to write because I was distracted by her blog for longer than I care to admit. So if you are not following her already, go do it now.
