Cuisine Spotlight: Bandeja Paisa
For my first post in the new "Cuisine Spotlight" series, I will be focusing on my favorite dish here in Colombia, which is known as the "Bandeja Paisa." Flavorful, unique, and made up of different food groups, "Bandeja Paisa" is a conglomeration of the best of Colombian cuisine, specifically of the Antioquia region. You can tell by its name that this popular food dish has its origins with the Paisas, who are the inhabitants of Department of Antioquia. If you translated "Bandeja Paisa" from Spanish to English, it would roughly mean "Paisa Platter."

My Personal Journey Through Diet
It doesn't take a genius to figure out that a diet really helps you in the long run. Like the catchphrase says, "you are what you eat." My journey began when I had a health scare a couple of months ago. I was diagnosed with a 26 cm tumor in my abdomen, almost obliterating my health. The signs were there, and the abnormalities were beginning to take place back in June of 2016. The tumor was taken out April 2017. I had lost 20lbs, weighing in at 85 lbs. Luckily, it wasn't cancer, but I had to lose an ovary due to the surgery. That prompted me to rethink my diet and my lifestyle choices. What we do to our bodies will have a great effect in our old age.

A Carnivore Turns Vegan
I've never liked social justice warriors. They always annoyed me, primarily because half of them seem like they're only doing it so they can post about it on Facebook and act like they're holier than thou. I've also never had a problem with people eating meat. I do, however, have a problem with the way most of that meat is obtained. It's one thing to hunt and kill your food- it's quite another to have entire warehouses packed with living beings who are slaughtered brutally by the thousands after a lifetime of mostly suffering. It's quite simple for me, it's a principle based on survival of the fittest- if I can't kill it myself, I don't deserve to eat it. I would be the predator that failed to catch its prey. If I was desperate maybe I could, but at this point in time there's plenty of other things to eat.
