It's so much easier to go through a drive thru or sit in a restaurant and have them cook/warm up your food. Who enjoys being inconvenienced about anything? I don't see any hands raised. This culture is so used to grab-n-go. It's basically become a very important part of our lives. I don't want to keep relying on businesses ad employees who don't care about the quality of my food. At this point in my life, I barely have money to my name but I know I don't want to settle. If I'm invited to anyone's birthday, celebration I might have to plan it out. I won't be a debbie downer. I love my friends that I have and the friends I'm going to meet soon. I appreciate them and I know it's vice versa. I'm mainly talking about when I'm alone, on the way to my future job, taking a lunch break, snack break, eating before and after my work out, visiting a friends house, at the movies, heading home after work, dinner, lunch, vacation. My last $20, $10, $5 will be spent on something that I purchase from a farmer's market, health food store, select organic sections in chain grocery stores. Make your own food. Read food labels so you know it's real. And even if I do eat out, I'll be conscious of what I'm ordering. The myth that eating healthy, organic and natural food is expensive is just an illusion. What you see on the price tag is not necessarily the value.

Food is one of the most important basic needs we humans need in order to survive. take baby steps, take giant steps. Only thing I care about and the only thing you should care about is that you're taking steps.

This is going to be a tough shift for me since convenience is all around us with well lit signs and billboard sporting the colors that are known to stimulate appetite.

If you are overweight, slightly or extremely, consider yourself mis and ill-informed.
Our bodies are made to move, but just because you move doesn't mean that the weight will come down. Pay close attention to what you're putting in your mouth. Look up the names on the back of the bag or can that you can't pronounce.

If it's normal, then question it.
Why is gluten-free, dairy-free, organic, natural foods all the buzz and controversy... research it yourself.
Research includes documentaries also ( for all of those who enjoy a movie and visual learners)


  1. I'm with you. There needs to be less "grab and go" and more questioning and contemplation for sure!

    1. I definitely have been doing better. I think there can still be "grab and go" especially for super busy people who have no choice or believe they don't have the choice for a sit down meals, but substitute convenience foods with dried fruit, fruit like banana, apple, or pear, veggies like broccoli.
