I Have A Confession To Make.
When I have been on a hiatus from healthy eating and I decide that it’s time for a drastic change in my dietary habits, I head to Whole Foods.
Not just to buy healthy eats.
I go there because when I’m shopping, I feel as though I’m the girl I want to be.
(Not on the inside ~ I love that girl!)
The girl on the outside. (workin’ on bigger love!)
When I’m pushing my green cart past the stacks of beautifully arranged
fruits and vegetables,
some of which I don’t even know how to prepare,
I am the girl who
recycles all the containers of everything I buy,
and rides her bike
This girl in the brown skirt
and flip flops has it going on
in the no~preservatives~in~her~food
She cooks most of her meals
and never goes through the KFC drive through
late at night.
She buys things like white pepper, exotic spices,
seaweed and raw macademia nuts because
these are just a few of the ingredients she uses
when concocting her organic, raw recipes.
So, this curly haired girl in the brown and pink
tee paid twice the amount for her groceries today
so that she could be all these things and more
for an hour
and a half.
she believes that
some of them will come true.
And, she doesn’t know how that
blueberry danish got into the cart.
