As many of you may remember in the previous blog I posted a couple of years ago, I declared a healthier direction in my dietary lifestyle. With that being said, I would be lying to you if I said that it was a smooth transition. During the course of transition, I fell off the wagon (if you will) while engaging in the same late nite eating habits that one picks up as an artist that works primarily at nite. There was a phase where I “wilded out” and statred eating plenty of red meat in all forms + poultry, somehow I did not engage in fast food as much during my transitional phase. About six month’s ago or more, my companion introduced me to the concept of dried foods, juices + flaxseed chips,etc. I gave it try and actually liked it, slowly I began to move away from turkey, chicken & beef (plus I saw a documentary called “Mad Cowbow”, heavy business in every sense of the term).
As a result, I have become vegetarian and no longer eat anything that has to suffer for my personal pleasure. Furthermore, I also began to witness many elders, entertainers & loved ones become victim to cancer, heart disease & diabtetes which was an indicator for me to swtich up the pace in my diet. Now dont get it twisted, I still make an occasional run to Mickey D’s for my large fries & 2 for 1 apple pie (I dont trust the oil..yet they claim its non fat vegetable oil). I am proud “Starchetarian”. ha!
To say the least, I am a beast in the kitchen (I learned from the best…Thank You Mom & Grandma!) You can eat dishes that will fill you up without the desire of heavy consumption. Here is a dish that I made with two pieces of blackend shark fish, grilled onions with olive oil (the key element for flavor is letting the onions simmer). Good health is the recipe to long wealth. If you eat right, you will live right. Stay inspired!
