Drunk Food Is Not Actually Ruining My Life

Drunk Eating May Actually Not Be Ruining My Life Because I Don't Regret That Taco Bell Quesadilla

It turns out I might be a little dramatic. Shocking.

So, I have a confession.

Last night, I did something bad. I went somewhere I thought I wouldn't go again. I did things I thought I wouldn't do again.

That's right, I went to Taco Bell last night.

Yep, I did the deed. Did the dirty. Got in bed with the devil. And let me tell you, it was f*cking amazing. If you are unaware of the gravity of this major event, check out my article from a few weeks ago where I go into detail about how drunk eating is ruining my life.

Yes, I know that I'm a little dramatic.

But let me just say this. As I was sitting at the bar last night (not that drunk, might I add), all I could think about was how great a chicken quesadilla slathered in hot sauce would taste in my mouth. Like, I wasn't thinking about how hot the guys at the bar were or what song was playing currently. I was thinking about food. Because honestly, that's just the girl I am. I was just sitting there, watching all the thotties flirt with the Brads and Chads of the bar, thinking about sitting on my ass at home watching TV, eating Taco Bell.

Can anyone else relate?

As I was thinking about this, I turned to my friend Taylor and confessed. We are both on the same spring break fitness journey, trying to eat healthy and be really good for two months until we have to flaunt our bods in Key West. I expected her to scold me or tell me I didn't need it, but she just nodded and said, "Let's finish these drinks and go."

I've never been so happy.

We briskly walked from the bar to Taco Bell (why is it 30 degrees in Gainesville right now?) so we definitely got some exercise on the way there. Or at least that's what I tell myself (and what the rings on my new Apple watch tell me!). I won't divulge into the details but I will just say that the feeling of eating that quesadilla after not having one in months was truly breathtaking. Like, it was a special moment between me and my quesadilla.

I'm only kind of kidding.

Anyways, my whole point to make after going on a tangent for an entire article is that life is all about balance. I worked out a lot this week and I've been eating well lately (which is so hard for someone who could eat pizza for every meal) so if I have Taco Bell once in a while, that's OK. I'm not going to feel guilty either because one time my aunt told me that her nutritionist told her that if you have a cheat meal, enjoy it. The body feels guilt and if you feel guilty for eating badly, it's worse for your body than if you just enjoy the food you're eating in the moment. Well, it was something like that. 2019 mood: have balance and life live guilt-free.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
