6 Reasons Why I miss Living Close To A Sonic

I cry every time I go down south and I spot a Sonic.


Before my family moved to Indiana, we lived in a small town in Kansas. Like many small towns, the area was surrounded by larger towns, but the closest larger town was close to 20 minutes away. In one of those towns, there was the absolute love of my life, Sonic. If you have never had Sonic, it is basically a drive-in restaurant that has the best, greasy food. I have been traveling a bit this summer, and every town I have passed through has at least one Sonic. I am living for it -- especially since the closest one at home is an hour and a half away. Here are my seven reasons why I miss living close to a Sonic.

1. Mozzarella Sticks


Sonic has the most delicious mozzarella sticks I have ever eaten. If I could eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be their mozzarella sticks. They fry them so well and I'm getting hungry right now just thinking about them. I seriously crave their mozzarella sticks at the most random times, and let me just say they are always worth the late night run to get them.

2. Tater Tots


If you have never had Sonic tater tots, you are not living! I love fries at any restaurant and rarely ever get tots when I go to a food place. Yet, here I am getting the crispiest tots I've ever consumed and sitting in my car ready to die because I am eating the best potato ever. If you love deep fried potatoes, you will love their tots.

3. Cherry Limeade Frozen


Holy moly, these are good. Sonic has the best slushies ever, don't even @ me right now. They have so many different combinations you can make. Another really good one is their pina colada slushie. You can catch me sipping one of these. I do have a plan to come up with more combinations and shall keep you all updated on what combos I find delicious.

4. Sonic Blast


Continuing the drink theme, their ice cream is so good! Especially their M&M Sonic Blast, which is superior to McDonald's M&M McFlurry in my opinion. I am a sucker for ice cream runs, and if there was a Sonic closer to me in Indiana, you best believe I would be there every time I had a craving for ice cream.

5. Hot Dogs


I am very odd about my hot dogs, and I do not eat them from very many places. However, Sonic has some of the best hot dogs I have ever tried at any restaurant. If you like hot dogs from ball parks you must try their "All-American Dog". Also, you can get a corn dog for just 98 cents.

6. Chicken, Chicken, And More Chicken


If you know me, you know that I love Chick-Fil-A, but I am also weird about my chicken. Sonic has the second best chicken (right after Chick-Fil-A of course). Their popcorn chicken has been one of my go-to's since I first went to Sonic, and it will continue to be my number one. Although, their burgers are also really good too.

No matter what, you can never go wrong at Sonic. Your body may hate you later, but it is very much worth it. The overall experience is super cool too. When I was younger, the Sonic servers would wear roller blades, and some Sonic's still have servers who do. Since moving to Indiana, our closest Sonic is about an hour and a half away, and (sorry not sorry) I do not feel like driving that far no matter how good the food is. I guess it is probably a good thing that there is not one so close to me, since I would be there almost every day. Overall, Sonic is it's own experience. Everyone should try it at least once. Right now, a Sonic sits just down the road from me, and I am going to take every opportunity I can to grab a slushie.

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.
