The Many virtues of Junk Food

Junk food:
  • tasty
  • addictive
  • cheap
  • convenient
  • lasts forever on a shelf

Healthy food:
  • blah-tasting
  • have to force myself to eat it
  • costs more
  • requires effort to prepare
  • have to go out of my way to find healthy food, in stores and restaurants and at parties (usually have to bring my own healthy food to a party)
  • goes bad in a matter of days in the fridge (or on the counter)
  • worst of all, requires me to eat my own cooking. And anyone who's ever eaten my cooking (few have done so and lived to tell the tale) knows what cruel and unusual punishment this is.

I think I've made my case. Junk food is the better choice.

Oh wait. I forgot about this part:

Junk food causes:
  • migraines
  • candida overgrowth
  • diabetes
  • ADHD
  • obesity
  • high blood pressure
  • inflammation
  • etc.

health food:
  • sticks in your teeth. Spinach, broccoli, beans, they all stick in your teeth. Ew!
Seems pretty clear, doesn't it? Junk food wins, hands down.

On a completely unrelated note, here's the word of the day:

fa·ce·tious [fuh-see-shuhs]

1. not meant to be taken seriously or literally: a facetious remark.
2. amusing; humorous.
3. lacking serious intent; concerned with something nonessential, amusing, or frivolous: a facetious person.
