I am not afraid of fat or eating healthy.

I eat kale so I can eat barbacoa tacos and drink mezcal.

I daydream of being in a permanent state of moistness and walking the fishy saucy streets of Bangkok.

I write poems about a particular artichoke dish.

I wish they sold orange bitters and seaweed snacks where I live.

I constantly search for a good Indian restaurant.

Repetitively fail at making pho at home.

Feel proud of adding chili to everything and I mean everything.

Love that I get to call myself a Mexican.

I grew up eating machacado, flour tortillas, and cheese…so much cheese.

I hadn’t realized I secretly love MSG and I try my best to learn each day a little bit more.
