Personal Narrative: Changing My Eating Habits

Good Essays
When I was younger, I was always criticized for being too skinny. People would mumble “chicken-legs” or “toothpick” behind my back and sometimes even to my face. I was always being told to eat as much as I could so I could get some meat on my bones, so I did. Around my 8th grade year summer, before entering high school, my whole body changed. I’m not sure if it was me finally reaching adolescence, but I sure did change my eating habits. I finally started to gain some weight, but my body was still in shape because I have always been an athlete. I have been playing soccer for as long as I could remember and it always kept me fit.

I remember the first time I tried it was at one of my friends house and it was probably the best food experience I have ever had. She was having a dinner party and her family is very italian, so I was extremely excited to try all the good food. When I saw the lasagna, I didn’t even know what it was. I just saw pasta and cheese, but it looked so good. My mouth watered as I was staring it down and could just imagine how good it was going to taste. Of course, when I tried it, I really felt like I went to heaven and tried the best lasagna in the world. It had the perfect amount of cheese, tomato sauce, pasta, and beef in it that made it so rich and delicious. I had so much of it in one day I felt like I could live off of it for the rest of my life. Just thinking about it honestly makes my mouth water and I get so excited because I love it that much. I could eat lasagna at any time of the day but I definitely cannot eat it from anywhere. There are certain places at home I like getting it from specifically, but what I love the most is making it on my own and adding enough of everything I like. I even add my own Hispanic touch to it to make it even better for me. My favorite food will always be lasagna because I haven’t had anything yet that I adore that much, and until I do, it will remain that

    With this in mind, Denny’s brings back a lot of amazing memories I had with family. These memories are moments in life I can always look back and always smile about it and relive those memories in my mind. On top of that, the food that Denny’s serves is very gratifying, in fact whenever, my family and I decide to go to Denny’s I always order the mouth watering, Double Cheeseburger and the delicious seasoned fries. Equally important, the fact that my family is eating together is the best thing in my mind about Denny’s. In fact, having my whole family present enjoying a meal together makes me extremely happy because we hardly eat a nice meal together, due to the fact that my family and I are all busy with either, school, work, or other activities that we have going on.…

    I was always very particular about my spot and my chair. Even when we had people over for meals I would have to let them know which spot was mine.

I served myself a mound of spaghetti, and good amount of broccoli as well.…
