“Over time, habits become automatic, learned behaviors, and these are stronger than habits you are trying to incorporate into your life.” (Foreyt) My eating patterns have changed throughout time but in all I do believe that my eating is a habit. I have been accustomed to certain foods, what my mom thought me to make, and what I have learned to make are foods that I stick by rather than changing it up. What I eat has changed from when I was younger to now. Even though my eating habits have not been all that good throughout my life I know that I have maintained a good eating habit all throughout.
My eating habits have not been a consistent balance. At times I was eating good and other times not so good. I now try to eat healthy and try not to eat out as much. This can be hard since going back to school involves me to be out during dinner time. Me not being able to sit down and have dinner with my family causes me to leave and grab something to go or if something is made then I grab what was made and take it with me. It is not the only reason as to why my eating habits have changes throughout the years. My kids, husband, and other family members have changed how I eat and what I eat. I’m going to take you along and briefly tell you about my eating habits throughout my years from when I was younger to now.

May dads home cooked meals were great too, his tortas, menudo, and grilling. We would eat out every once in a great while. We would go get McDonalds or order pizza. This occasionally happened when my parents wouldn’t have time to cook from getting home late or not having time. We would hardly do this though. We always had home cooked meals. Another thing we would do once a month was going out to a restaurant and have a family day. We would go out and eat at are favorite restaurant and go to the movies after. These were my younger days when I was little and in elementary school.
When I was a bit older, old enough to cook and buy things, when I was given money. My diet consisted of whatever was given to me or whatever I would buy. I would always skip breakfast because I never wanted to eat that early in the morning. During lunch time I would eat whatever the school provided if it taste good if not I wouldn’t eat. At times when I had money I would buy a bag of chips or candy and I would eat that throughout the day. When I would get home I would make a sandwich or frozen food and eat what was left over from my snack if I had any or I would go to the store and by a bag of chips. It was a bad habit I was always snacking on something and I would just be eating throughout the day. When it came to dinner time I would eat what was made because it was always good home cooking. During this time though one summer I got very sick and I would vomit everything that was feed to me. After I got...
