Here’s something that popped into my mind the other day: why is it so much easier to eat fast food/processed food than actually cooking something and using fresh ingredients?
There is the convenience, you know? It’s easier to heat up a cup of noodles or a t.v. dinner than it is to make something. Right now, it is a little bit strange to be cooking during the week, mostly because I just want to relax. And on the weekend? I get a little bit lazy- but I’m hoping my required cooking will help me out with that.
But back to today’s topic. It feels like it’s cheaper to eat all the processed stuff. I don’t mind it every once in a while, but do I really need a candy bar and a bag of chips everyday? Of course not.
I seem to go through this really random periods where I do my best to eat healthy (but still enjoy things like chocolate) but then I’ll just go through this period where I don’t care at all.
It’s something I struggle with, and I definitely want to find a good balance between cooking and eating well, and yet still enjoy junk food. It doesn’t have to be one or the other for me, and I do think it’s possible to do both.
Honestly, I can’t think of anything else for now, but with only a couple weeks to go, I really need to get started on that required cooking!
