|Disgusted?? You should be.|
Being that my parents are somewhat Rastafarian, I didn’t eat pork for about 15 years (with the occasional sneaky bacon when I went out to breakfast) but once I got to college it was a little harder to keep up that lifestyle. However, contrary to most, my swine intake was still very small and ultimately limited to bacon and the sometimes very lean cuts they would put on the salads at food services (gotta miss Berea College). Once I graduated from college and cooked all of my own food, I hardly ever had it at all. Needless to say, things changed rather rapidly once I came to Korea.
Pork is cheap and easily accessible here so it finds itself on my plate more often than any other food around. Determined to not be “Diva-esque” when I got here, I tried my damndest to keep my mouth shut about the continuous ingestion of the
So I started protesting any dinner that included pork and letting my disgust be well known. Nicely, yet firmly, putting my stiletto down and refusing to partake. Pre-Madonna much? I thought so too. So when this last dinner came around, the Diva in me acquiesced to the higher ups and went out for pork galbi. BIG MISTAKE.
Enter FOOD POISONING stage right. I am way to fly to be stuck on, and/or bent over the toilet. Not my style. And on top of that, I was sick for the next week and had to go to the hospital again and have a HORRIBLE thing done!!!! The Diva was and is STILL kicking my butt for not sticking to my principles.
· I will NOT be eating anything that comes from smelly disgusting pigs (except bacon when I get to England… Hypocritical? SO WHAT!) I am putting pork right up there with mayonnaise, cottage cheese, and celery.
· I will NOT go against my better judgment and do something that I don’t want to do to appear nice and easy going—I am nice, but I like what I like and I want what I want. I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
At the end of the day, I like Korea overall, but I def miss the food of yesteryear.
(FYI----Pig's bodies contain many toxins, worms and latent diseases. Although some of these infestations are harbored in other animals, modern veterinarians say that pigs are far more predisposed to these illnesses than other animals. This could be because pigs like to scavenge and will eat any kind of food, including dead insects, worms, rotting carcasses, excreta (including their own), garbage, and other pigs.) KILL ALL THE PIGGIES!!!
What foods do you hate and refuse to eat??
