Trying to eat healthy is hard. It’s expensive, it’s boring and it’s time consuming. It’s especially hard if you love food. Mmmm, food. Salty and sweet, ooey and gooey, buttery and savory, food glorious food!
You love Jessica. You really do. But how does that skinny bitch house a huge burger with fries and a milkshake and not gain any weight? You eat one potato chip and your hips grow an inch! Life is seriously so unfair.
You love to go out and be with your best friends. You live for happy hour and a boozy brunch. It is nearly impossible to eat and drink anywhere and still be healthy. Once you get a few drinks in you, those fries start looking real tasty. And I don’t remember ever seeing a healthy bites vegan spot with a killer happy hour. Unfortunately, life doesn’t work that way.
You’ve been good for a day, so you deserve bacon. You were great all morning, so grilled cheese for lunch sounds appropriate. You only ate five Twizzlers yesterday, so today you are free! It’s easy for your cheat day to quickly turn into your cheat week.

It is so much cheaper to buy a box of cereal or a frozen pizza than to buy eggs, Braggs Liquid Aminos, protein powder, vegetables, fruits, a juicer, a blender, flax seeds, hemp seeds and tofu. It just is.
What’s that smell? Remember when you went to the grocery store and bought a million veggies to throw in a green smoothie that you don’t really have time to make? Well, now your vegetable drawer is overflowing with rotten vegetables and your whole apartment smells because of it. It sounds like it may be better for your health and well-being to only eat frozen pizza and takeout from now on.
