So many of us have that ONE thing that we’re hooked on and eat from time to time (even though we know it’s bad for us…). Whether it be candy or coffee, I recommend flipping over and looking at the nutritional label. It might give you a reality check and open your eyes to what is actually going into your body. See how bad ”that” REALLY is for you!
My theory is that we need to satisfy the body first, then the mind – that doesn’t mean don’t enjoy your food, I’m just saying that your health should be priority. Healthy food can have incredible taste, there are certainly lots of options that will please both mind & body (like this beautiful coconut water that I’m drinking for breakfast right now – hello electrolytes and calcium, love you).
I had a serious ”grand-soy-chai-Starbucks-addition” I had to get over a while back… but after just glancing at the first couple lines of the label above (aka the big 43 grams of sugar starring right back at me) I stopped. AND you won’t be seeing me with a green & white cup anytime soon, at least not filled with this substance 🙂
