Contrary to popular belief, you’re allowed to eat whatever the hell you want.
The “healthy” community of social media can get really tiring. Everywhere you turn, somebody is telling you what you should or shouldn’t eat. And it happens in the real world, too.
Somebody brings cookies into your office, and when you go to grab one, Patrice scolds you for eating sugar. You know, because sugar is so awful for you.
Nobody asked you, Patrice!
It’s smart to be informed. I like to share nutritional information and give you the tools to make your own decisions on what you would like to eat.
I would never advise someone to eat cookies every single day. But if you want a cookie, eat a damn cookie. If calories are a concern for you, know how many calories you’re consuming, and move on with your life.
There’s always going to be people telling you what you should or shouldn’t eat. Ignore them. Seriously.
It’s one thing to educate someone, but it’s another thing to totally berate them. Everyone knows that a cookie isn’t a health food- let them enjoy their 100 calories of happiness and move on with their lives.
