I love all kinds of food - from so many ethnic backgrounds. I am thankful too to be married to a guy who loves the ever succulent adventure of trying new foods and then re-visiting those dishes whenever we can. There are very few things I've tried that I have utterly disliked - or perhaps I've not acquired a taste for it yet.
Food can be taken advantage of or even abused but I believe that God meant for us to enjoy all these tastes and a variety of unique dishes with relish and with no guilt!
Serving sizes matter, though. Use discretion and don't stretch your stomach into always requiring more to feel full! Drinking lots of water - even a glass before a meal can help you control the amount you want eat. All things in moderation and eating is truly an absolute joy!
I do have my own thoughts and opinions about food. I really believe that the more natural we go and try our best to use and prepare food with unprocessed ingredients, the better it is for our health. I think also, that home-cooked and fresh prepared is the best. It may take extra time but is worth it! Additives, preservatives and chemicals accumulate in our bodies and eventually may wreak havoc on our health. When we cook from scratch we can control the quantity and the quality of the ingredients. We decide our portions ... it is up to us to use self-control.
All that is not to say I always choose wisely or perfectly in my eating but my general way of life and eating is pretty clean and natural.
