Grab a bowl:
Fill it with dried seaweed…
Proceed to eat…
Or you could just have 1 Brussels sprout!
I’m trying to continue my life of healthy living. But these reasons below, make food so stressful. I sometimes question if society has secretly wrote a manual against food lovers. Why is eating such a pain, when you decide to ditch the unhealthy?
Salads are a rip-off
You mean to tell me, that this bunch of leaves in a small box is worth £6 – because you have put two mouthfuls of fancy salmon inside?
My other option – the blandest looking veg, with a serving of a high calorie sauce, or the salad that’s really a decomposed sandwich. In which case – why am I not eating a sandwich?
Cafe’s offer every delicious ‘bad food’ going. You try your hardest to stay “clean”, but your other options are limited. Even the muffins are saying – we don’t blame you for picking the ‘bad food’!
Healthy packets spill everywhere
Will there ever be a day, when my pumpkin seeds don’t dance in my cupboard? Will the quinoa ever contain itself to its packet?
The pegs are not strong enough. I need to invest in glass jars. And just pray I eat them all before they go off. (Remember to buy stickers).
Don’t ask your friends to be healthy
If you inform your friends that you are going to start taking care of yourself, they will usually be supportive. That is until you go for dinner together, or somehow end up eating at the same time at the same location – then you need to indulge.
You need to live a little – right!
Don’t ask them to try a night of healthy food though. You will be looked at, as if you have just asked them whether they would like a bowl of seaweed or 1 Brussels sprout.
Healthy recipes soon add the “bad”
You finally find a good recipe that you actually have all the ingredients for – most ask for all the vegetables available at your supermarket.
But then the recipe you find, starts giving you the option of adding cheese, milk and chocolate etc. Suggesting these great delights, they put in brackets: (Optional). You then decide that you do want these things – they are not optional.
And then you think – is this healthy? Have I just added enough cheese to cover a family pizza? Should I just have pizza?
People tell you that veg is their treat
I understand fitness competitions – people have to eat very specific.
How disheartening however, when you upload your healthy meal, only to see someone has uploaded something similar and called it a treat.
Potato, veg and chicken = treat! Well, I am just a living a life of lies – pretending that I am healthy. What’s unhealthy about this combination?
