    they are on farmers market at Saturday morning instead of sleeping
    they are able to buy and carry 20 pounds of organic beef on their own back across whole city
    they spend whole Sunday cooking, preparing and freezing
    they are only people who never touch free sweets at work
    they are angry if they see paleo pancakes labeled as "Whole30 approved" on Pinterest

    So, I had an epiphany today... Day two of my #JanuaryWhole30 reset on my journey to change my relationship with food, and was just thinking about food and it's affect on bodies. Junk food, sweets, etc. are like being in a relationship with an abuser. You eat and, ahhh the bliss, things go good for a while, then you wake up one day and Wham! Your life has been taken over by this monster. Abusing you, putting you in the hospital, controlling your life, affecting how you feel about yourself and telling you it's all your fault. If only you were better, nicer, stronger, loved more etc.. Nutrient dense food doesn't always look so special, might seem boring and blah, but it loves you, feeds you to the core, nourishes you, gives you energy, happiness on a daily basis, like a real friend. The blissful moments in a bad relationship seem so wonderful because of the starkness of the dark side. Yet they really are no better than the continued day in and out of the healthy relationship there's no dark side to contrast the moments of bliss. I want that constant daily nourishing stable healthy relationship, not the monster in the house...

    My fav is still the one about not licking our fingers. That makes me laugh every time.
    Last week I made oatmeal cookies with my daughter for a camp party and she asked if she could lick my fingers since I wasn't going to.
