My Relationship with Food

I am in between due dates, wrapping up today's work and decided to pig out with my bf and Netflix. Feeling cerebral, so, I picked "Food, Inc." to go with our fries, sodas, big mac, and big-n-tasty. Yep! What a "bad" (but good) choice of movie... I really wish to eat less meat (again)... My wish to become a vegetarian is ON - again.

It has been VERY VERY difficult to go 100% vegetarian - and I am not up for that challenge. But, I have been doing pretty all right with cutting down my meat consumption. Meat just tastes... so good... I really need to learn some yummy vegetarian recipes and adapt a good cooking+eating habit. Not easy, coz 1.) I am STILL trying to fight my internet addiction which is realllly effecting my sleep (oh look at me! its 1am! n i m waking at 7am! i m still on BLOGGER!) 2.) lack of sleep makes me... dumb, unmotivated, n unfocused - pretty hard to kick a bad habit w/ this state of mind!

Regardless, my internet addiction/sleep shall be a whole different post.
On the topic of food...

I have noticed my emotional eating pattern. I do eat a lot more when I am stressed/feeling emo.
Luckily I still have a pretty fast metabolism. Though, It has slowed down in these past few days and I know it, because I have been rushing my deadlines/stress levels are high/quality of sleep suffered a little/eating and watering consumption pattern has changed too.

So yea, knowing that I eat my emo's (lol) I shall at least eat organic and keep nothing but organic products in my fridge... and tunnel vision on just organic food - ignoreeee other's "Bad" food. ignooooreeeeeee other's yummyyy heavily processed food!

And, yea, if you haven't already checked out Food, Inc. Give it a try. It is a very great documentary that can really put
the weight on your conscience next time you decide to have a chezeburger.
