Oh, You Healthy, Huh?

Alright. This is going to be a rant session. But I had to share this. I can't be the only one who feels this way.

During my attempt to find some recipes and ideas during my Advocare 24-Day Challenge, I ended up stumbling up people's blogs and Pinterest boards that freaked me out a little bit.

I get the concept of eating right, and clean, and healthy. I really do. You get the nutrients you need and avoid the fat, and blah, blah, blah.

But some people need to live a little. I don't get it. 

Do you seriously go through life only eating things that come out of the ground, off a tree, or from an all-natural-fed animal on an organic farm? Where do you people live that you can find this stuff everywhere?? And how much money do you have that you can afford this pickiness? 

Like, give it a break...

Eat a brownie. Or some cheese dip. Drink a margarita. Or, gasp, a beer.

You people stress me out. There's no way you can actually have friends. Unless your friends are also this crazy. What do you people do? Sit around and talk about how great your salad was that day?


I just can't.

And it's also these people who workout like a bunch of maniacs. As do I. But my whole world doesn't revolve around it. I think these people may spend hours a day in a gym. With their friends talking about how much they love their locally-grown organic mangos they bought at the farmer's market yesterday.

And if they aren't crazy gym people, they are the yoga and elliptical moms. You know who I'm talking about.

Oh, and they feel the need to tell everyone about every healthy meal they make. Look at my all-organic, quinoa chicken chili with ZERO fat. We get it. It's healthy. Bye.

Moral of the story here: EAT LIKE NORMAL PEOPLE, Y'ALL.

You aren't going to die because you had some fat. Or non-organic cheese. Or whatever.

Live a little. You'll have more friends. I promise.

End rant.

Am I the only person who has some issues with these people? Or am I just a little too wound up about all this? Or can someone help me understand this?
