I have people telling me that I should eat this and absolutely don't eat that. Well I was raised on beans, fried potatoes, and cornbread, and whatever was in season from the garden. Meat was a luxury and mostly deer, squirrel, rabbit, or chicken. And that was on special occasions. My parents raised 8 kids so we ate what was available. Now that I am diabetic I have had to reinvent new ways to prepare foods. I eat a lot of steamed veggies. Don't eat deer, squirrel or rabbit anymore and only the white meat of chicken. The only pasta I eat is mac and cheese but very rarely eat that. I hate spaghetti. Yogurt taste like spoiled milk to me. I have started to bake most of my meats and use garlic on most meats and in soups. I will eat fish but no other water creatures for me. I only cook with vegetable oil but never add it to beans, soups, etc. So when someone tries to tell me what and what not to eat I just laugh and say moderation and portion control..
