List of Foods I Never Thought I’d Eat Freely

As I poured myself some orange juice just now, and thought about my weird, yet care-free Sunday of eating: banana, bagel and cream cheese, orange, salad with cheese, now orange juice… I realized: YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

Here are some more things that 2 years ago I never thought I would freely consume, when I want them, without more than I second thought:

  • gourmet cake doughnuts
  • pretzels
  • BREAD. DIP that bread in that non-perfect olive oil
  • sweetened yogurt (HA)
  • bagels (above)
  • tropicana orange juice (above)!
  • Cream or Whole Milk or whatever there is available, (but skim is gross to me)
  • so many bananas (after I was a raw vegan I never thought I would eat them again, but they are convenient.)
  • SANDWICHES. just eat them – they are filling and so very good.
  • cookies.
  • kit kat bars.
  • pancakes with maple syrup
  • waffles with ice cream
  • haagen dasz by the half pint
  • OH the poTAToes!
  • shit ton of butter
  • food that has shit oils in it, but I am hungry and I am out so who cares.
  • beer!
  • cheese for/with almost every meal
  • pasta. I am hungry and this is pasta ad I will eat all of it until I am not hungry, and everything is good and fuckin' fine
  • ditto rice.
  • fried rice.
  • pie. pie + almond butter. weird and good.
  • pizza. more than one slice for god's sake.

 

 

There is an infinite amount of foods I could list right now I am sure, but this list is what my glass of orance juice just inspired me to write.

 

So keep doing what you are doing- keep going- keep eating- keep living and breathing and doing fun things. Keep loving yourself and keep reminding yourself that life is not a stupid diet. Life is life and food is food and I still eat salads because they taste good.

 

Fuck. It.

 

Please.

  1. Thank you, Jenny for making this morning the first morning I’ve not struggled with which diet to start today, or not to start one,. or maybe I can start one tomorrow,. and omg YUCK,. I can’t eat meat and cheese all day long.. etc etc.. such a pleasant few days i’ve had since reading your stuff. It’s brilliant and true,. but not so easy to conquer the first few days, I found myself buying organic foods, and have told myself that no processed foods but rather anything “real” is on. But that means I’m judging whats good and bad food. I think I decided on whole foods because processed is bad.. right?

  3. I just wanna say, I can so relate to this. Now that I don’t diet I eat: sweetened yogurt, juice, granola bars, lattes that you can’t order “skinny”, and I always order a starch side at restaurants, whereas before I’d just get veggies. I do all these things without a second thought now, whereas if I consumed them before, I felt a sense of guilt, that I was doing something “bad”. Yay for the “fuck it” diet!!!
