Fixing Poor Eating Habits

Consider your Childhood

The first step to fixing poor eating habits is understanding where you developed bad eating habits. I started down the path of poor dietary practices as a child. Not that my parents, my school, and society did not try to educate us. I chose not to listen. Instead, I followed what I experienced in life. In short, I chose my poor diet.

Healthy Cooking Story – Fixing a Bad Diet

First and foremost, Healthy Cooking is about the “Eat Fresh” movement and spreading the word about the benefits of good dietary habits. The blog gives readers valuable insights into the challenges faced by people living in urban environments. The inspiration of these words comes from my story of transformation from “bad eating” to “good eating”. I can pretend that you will listen to some guy in Detroit, but I am not that vain. However, you can be sure that our words are authentic.

Healthy Cooking: Our Story

One Thursday in 2004, I woke up with a stomach ache. This was not an abnormal event. I went about my day, but the pain slowly worsened. By Sunday, I was at the hospital doubled over in pain. They diagnosed me with a relatively common intestinal disorder called Diverticulitis. I did not care what they called it. I just wanted the pain to stop.

A Special Diet

The long term solution was simple. Eat better, healthy food. This sounded easy enough, but I faced several problems. One, I did not know how to cook. Two, I did not how to shop for good food. Three, I had poor dietary habits. For the last twelve years, I struggled to overcome these challenges. Today, I am a good cook, I focus on buying fresh ingredients, and I have virtually eliminated my poor eating habits. Most importantly, no stomach pain.

Failure is an Option

Around our house, we love to experiment. Whether it be combining new flavors or trying a new Word Press plug-in, our inquisitive nature keeps us young & fresh. With this quality comes many failures. We try to celebrate our mistakes, but we understand that failure disheartens many people. If there is one truth that we have learned, it is we will fail. We hope that by seeing both our failures and triumphs together, you might be encouraged to join the “Eat Fresh” movement.
