Now you can be healthy, you can even know most of the ins and outs of food, but there are some things that commonly cross only the minds of super health freaks. If you are food and nutrition obsessed these thoughts most likely go through your head on a daily basis...if not, then you might just be the average healthy Joe. No One's Judgin!
# 1 Saucy Secrets
These Have NO Calories. Well at least most of them dont! You have come up with some really interesting concoctions of seasoning and hot sauce to give your food flavor without the calories. Admit it, sometimes your creations have left you in burning tears.
#2 Fruit Fruition
You don't consider fruit to be the best snack. Fruit is sugar and most the time is used as a treat not as a rewardable health food. Apple a day keeps the doctor away, not the belly.
#3 Useless Veggies
A vegetable is certainly not just a vegetable. There is a huge difference in how you rank them. Peas, carrots and corn are categorized as treat vegetables. Basically sugar with little benefits, such a sad life. Eat your kale and fake a smile.
#4 Two words: FOOD.LABELS.
This consumes you. Everything you buy that is in a package is thoroughly examined, ranked, researched, and judged. You aren't letting anything fool you. I see you partially hydrogenated vegetable oil.
#5 Organic is a touchy word for you
Organic does not simply mean healthy! You can't stand how everyone buys organic everything and think they are a health god. Many things don't need to be organic as well as many different labels don't even mean that they are fully organic. what does organic even mean anyway? This subject keeps you awake at night (Or maybe that's just me?)
#6 Calories can't hide from you
Gum, mints and small candies aren't mindless items to you. You are fully aware that they contain calories and sugar and you aren't going to pretend they don't! Who wants to waste 100 precious calories on a few mints?
#7 Scandalous Whole wheat
No, actually I hate you. You wonder how bread can be whole wheat but the first ingredient is whole wheat white flour. What is whole wheat white flour? What does cracked wheat mean? Is whole grain better, whats the difference between a grain and a wheat? AHH I'll just eat a different form of carb.
#8 Big does not mean better to you
This is scary in so many ways. While it is nice to have more food, a chicken is not physiologically supposed to be that big! You don't get excited when you see how large the chicken or eggs are at the grocery store, instead you are rather repulsed. HORMONE ALERT!
#9 Liquid has calories, a lot of them
Juice and sports drinks don't fool you. You are not going to compromise 300 calories on an unsatisfying glass of sugar. Juice is far from healthy and many times contains more sugar than soda! But you knew that ;)
#10 You wish you weren't so smart
Sometimes you wish you didn't know all that you do about nutrition and food. You would love to go out to eat and not feel like you just consumed a laboratories supply of chemicals, but hey, too bad. You're better off knowing, right? :)
