Apple Crisp

I was called “high maintenance” the other week when I was ordering food at a restaurant. I was invited out to a Japanese restaurant with some co-workers and other people that I didn’t know. Because I know my body, what makes it feel good and what makes me feel like ish I ordered the chicken hibachi with white rice instead of fried and asked for no soy sauce or any other sauce on the chicken and vegetables. Because of that, I was told I was high maintenance. Excuse me, ma’am, you don’t know anything about me or my health and you have the audacity to call me out on my food choices? I didn’t say that but really wanted to. I also didn’t judge her for getting the fried rice or the meat and veggies with all the soy sauce because it isn’t my place to judge! Let me do me and you do you.

I saw something floating around facebook the other day and it caught my eye because it is so true! It read, “People eat junk food without batting an eye but offer them something healthy and they become researchers.” Have you ever noticed this before or maybe you’ve been one of them? It is very important to educate yourself on the foods you are fueling your body with and understanding what those foods do for you. A lot of people are so quick to research (and by research I mean google and believe mainstream media articles) health trends, techniques or lifestyle choices and form their judgements rather quickly about them. But, are they also researching what is in the Halloween candy they just ate or the ingredients in the bowl of chips and dip they just ate? I doubt it. The woman who said I was high maintenance, I bet if she knew and understood the reason I don’t eat soy, she wouldn’t have been so quick to make that judgement.

This recipe, OMG! The only thing I regret about this recipe is that I haven’t made it sooner! What the heck was I thinking?! This is by far one of my tastiest and easiest dessert recipes. Go make it, now! And then, make it again and then, make it for Thanksgiving. Speaking of Thanksgiving, I have so many recipes jotted down that I don’t think I will have the time to make them all. But, I will definitely have you fully locked and loaded to have a healthy and scrumptious Thanksgiving!
