"Alternative" healthy Lifestyle

Have you ever wondered why people call you "alternative" when you eat raw food, vegetables and fruits and they eat packaged merchandise?

I'm weird because I'm watching what I put in my mouth, I read the ingredients and I try to avoid eating chemicals and preservatives even to put it on my skin.

Why am I the alternative? I think merchandise eaters are!

I'm just wondering since when this become the alternative lifestyle? Sometimes at the end of the 20th century I'm sure... Or yeah, back then they didn't have to watch the ingredients since everything was natural...

Re: "Alternative" healthy Lifestyle

I don't think I would of thought of that term for you but I do have a whole lot of terms for different eating habits....as you do as well. I think you(or anyone) can be healthy with whatever your choice of food or words are. You can also drop dead for unknown reasons....and it could be the people that ate different decided they wanted to use the term to describe themselves...who cares.
