When I started this blog I wanted to include posts on what to eat and what not to eat, instead of posting just recipes. I quickly learned that posting recipes is easy… but it’s an entirely different story trying to compose a post about how certain foods are going to either kill you or make you stronger. Who wants to read something preachy? Not me. I’m never preachy… bahahahahahaaaaaaa. I kill me.
I finally bit the bullet and posted three new pages; you can find them in the menu bar under “what to eat” and “what not to eat.” I’ll be adding more items to these lists but I wanted to point them out to you since they contain the basic food rules I live by, and I feel that we would all be so much healthier if we focused on real food and cut out toxins.
I also wanted to share a philosophy that I feel has served me well, especially in my recent journey towards optimal health. It’s the 80/20 principle, which says that 80% of the time you should follow healthy (in Pigforkr’s case, ancestral) food guidelines very closely, and 20% of the time you’re free to loosen up and just eat what you want to eat. If you aren’t in ideal health, those numbers might be a little closer to 90/10… but you get the idea.
There’s a lot more to life than food, and I believe (as did the ancient Chinese) that in some cases it’s better to eat the wrong food with the right attitude than the other way around. Go pizza and beer!
