In junior high it was popular to wear JNCO jeans and Nike shoes...specifically ones that were not made in China. And since I wanted to avoid being made fun any more than I already was and my mom loved me she bought me JNCO jeans and Nike shoes. It didn't really change the fact that I was made fun of but at least I had something right....at least according to THEM!
So here I am, 24 years old, a wife, a mommy to 2 babies, managing my own home and it has happened again. I love to cook and I can do it very well. My mommy taught me how to follow recipes! Sometimes I get creative and add my own ingredients. It doesn't matter. The point here is that I don't use a whole lot of salt to cook with. I find it unnecessary and I can use other herbs and spices to make my food extra yummy. And salt makes me balloon up! I seriously swell up if I have too much salt over a period of time. So...I have some people in my life that make fun of me for not using salt. Really it doesn't sound like it's such a big deal but over time and with my past experience's of being made fun of I start to care what they think and in my brain if I start using salt in my food maybe I won't be made fun of anymore. So I start adding salt when I cook. Not a big deal I decide...until now. I feel like crap and my whole body feels like a balloon! I knew it. I know how I react to salt and I feel like an iddiot for caring what other people think. So, I will go back to my own way of cooking and illiminating salt from my food!
