My 90s Diet…Reasons why I’m overweight

Much like the 1970’s, the 90’s was an era of a microwaved food revolution. New and exciting tasty microwaved products were being released targeted towards kids and their parents who are too lazy to make them real food.

Always noticed but rarely traded, Lunchables were at the top of schoolyard commodities…alongside Dunkaroos and SodaLicious, of course. The types of Lunchables available read like your dream cafeteria menu: Tacos, Pizza, Nachos, Hot Dogs, Burgers, and the lowly sibling of Ham n’ Cheese crackers. But like most school cafeteria food, all the “good” options were , in retrospect, awful! I mean, who wants to eat cold nachos or burgers? Who enjoys plain hot dogs? And the pizza? Though it was the most popular option on my playground, the crust (Let’s admit it) was like styrofoam. Back in the day, my mom would only get me ham n’ cheese Lunchables. I’m so …
