I'm part of Post A Day 2016

They say, “You can’t have/do that, it’s bad for you.” “That carcinogenic, don’t eat that.” and much, much more.

I agree on some things, like heroin, smoking, and eating glass. However, on the measure of food, I consider it all hokum. Yes, radical thinking I know, especially in the age of 5 portions of fruit and veg a day, sugar-free, low calory, light, non-GM rubbish.

My grandmother was born in 1883 and died of old age in 1979 at the age of 95 (just before her 96th). She believed in eating what you liked, and would eat the fat off meats, dip bread in beef dripping, smother food with salt and only every use proper butter, no spreads or margarine in her store cupboard that’s for sure.

I know people who have an amazingly healthy lifestyle, no rubbish in their diets, no trans fats, salts, carbs and other fads, yet they are the most unhealthy people I know. One was rushed into hospital after a stroke. This person was fit, did marathons (not the chocolate bars) and worked out at the gym all the time, but no matter what, he ended up with problems. His wife, the same, but again she became ill.

I take pride in eating what I want. Although, I do not eat Gluten as I have coeliacs and just cannot tolerate it, or at least my stomach and bowels cannot tolerate it, but, as for bad foods, bring them on. I am not a chocolate lover, but savory is the fastest way to my heart. I am healthy and happy to smother my jacket potato with a pound of butter (from grass fed cows), drink coffee all the time (freshly ground by me) with two sugars and full-fat milk, eat chops with the biggest rind of fat you can find, and yes, I will suck the bone clean of meat, fat and marrow. I love bacon rind, raw, oh my god is he crazy? yes maybe I am but rind mmmm. I love cabbage cooked then thrown into the bacon fat in the frying pan to give it an extra taste. Coke is a staple along with peanut butter (Whole Earth as it isn’t sweet) which I eat by the spoonful. Ice cream is another staple, especially Ben & Jerry’s.

I had my DNA tested to see if I had to worry about anything in the future, and it would seem that I am going to live forever, unless I get hit by a car, fall off a really high building or bridge, or am shot in the head or heart. My DNA showed I have no markers for anything.

I drink alcohol rarely, but it’s because I am out driving every day, so just don’t want to risk losing my license .
With all that in mind, I believe in having a little of what I fancy, covered in peanut butter with a large side order of fried chop rind/fat. Anyone care to join me?
