spent the day with my sister shopping and grabbing lunch downtown. i had a fair amount of paninis in italy, which reminded me of my love for them. ive been craving one like crazy, so when the waitress brought my roasted veggie and mozzerella panini on multigrain ciabatta (extra toasted 😈), i could have cried. then i took the first bite, and actually teared 😩 i care deeply about what goes into my body and spend a majority of my life making decisions that are best for my health. im a huge ingredient person, and i strive to always know what im doing for my health. but part of being healthy is honoring cravings and going with the flow. being healthy means ordering what you crave, taking one meal out of the literal hundreds you eat without worrying about the exact ingredients. i could have worried about what type of oil was used to roast the veggies, or what additives were in the bread, etc etc. i used to fee so guilty for eating out because i knew i could make "healthier choices" using my own ingredients. while that's good most of the time, don't forget that your health is not an all or nothing concept. one meal dedicated to mental health is just as important as one dedicated to physical health. its all about balance. i enjoyed this panini because it was freakin' delicious, because it was exactly what ive been craving for weeks, because i ate it in the company of my best friend, because i ate it wearing my new woodstock cactus t shirt (😍), because its a beautiful sunny summer day and im alive. sorry for the rant, but this is more for anyone out there who needs a reminder than for myself. being so free with food for so long has been a hard-earned blessing, and i love sharing my little insights with you all in an effort to spread hope. 💚
