You have a point. To reach my age and not be gulping prescription pills is almost unheard of. My Daddy always had a garden. Sure, I had my share of junk food, but the fresh garden vegetables made its mark. As an adult, I’ve had few times that I didn’t have a garden. My mother developed an allergy to nightshade vegetables in her 50’s. I now break out from contact with tomato vines.

completely guilt-free i am an enabler for sure. :) moderation is my hardest thing though.

as the youngest of four kids in a hungry household you learned to eat as fast as you can and if you were lucky you could get seconds. that is a horribly bad habit for older years though. :(
I'm also the youngest of 4, and yep, if you eat fast you might get seconds. I made myself sick a few times doing that. Eat more carrots to get mac n cheese. Never got the mac n cheese, and I hated carrots for 2 decades after.

Another big family/food insecurity effect is being forced or pressured to eat foods one dislikes. In hindsight, all of my childhood dislikes turned out to be allergens. Parenting tip: if a 4 year old complains that orange juice burns her mouth, consider the possibility she's not "just being dramatic" and that it actually burns her mouth.? My sister has oral allergy syndrome from orange. I have rather mild symptoms from consuming orange, but worse symptoms if it touches my skin. It has gotten steadily worse so I stay away from it and other citrus.

Most of my health problems are from childhood diet and eating patterns.

We had 2 birthdays in our house plus Halloween in the past week… so today was supposed to be a return to normalcy. But then DD2 had an engorged tick on her😩 so waiting to hear back from her pediatrician regarding antibiotics. The deer ticks have been bad this fall, which is not normal for us.

It's the tortilla chips and salsa I've been on for the last couple months that did me in. I've just been having super cravings for them. Which probably means I'm missing something.
You could be missing something, but before assuming that, check if they have "natural flavor" in the ingredients. Those are the ingredients that cause addiction behaviors.

Someone’s dropping off pig halves to be butchered, and the vet is on her way for a farm call, blood draws for the sheep and annual shots for the LGD’s. Feeling super farmy today😂 even though I’m not totally in the mood for any of it. Might need more coffee😴

just reading that makes me want to take a nap. good luck! :)

i'll be outside for a while today once it warms up enough. frosty night last night.
