What is your favorite cheat food?
That is a question I am often asked.
In my former life, I would have told you, hands down, fro yo….in particular Menchinations (i.e. Menchies).
That was the former, this is the now (I haven’t had Menchies since June, 2013).
You will hate my answer, but it is the truth: I don’t “cheat” anymore. Cheating is for those who discipline out of hate vs. love.
Many of the things I eat would be considered “cheating” to most:
“Cheating” is subjective, but I have chosen to cheat for myself instead of on myself.
People cheat in relationships for a myriad of reasons, but at the core of cheating is a level of unhappiness.
Claiming a “cheat food” and engaging in deprivation for earning rights perhaps demonstrates this same level of unhappiness.
It sure did for me when I hated myself.
But I’m happy. My gut is healing. I’m learning more and more each day the secrets for why (and how) I’ll never need to cheat a day again in my life.
Love your guts,
