no food is bad food

I honestly had a dude like YELL at me yesterday because he told me where free sandwiches were and I said “oh that’s great, but I ate dinner like twenty minutes ago.” 

He was like I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THAT MATTERS, WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU and then said he was gonna go find people who “aren’t on DIETS.”

HEY IT’S A (really late) VALENTINE’S DAY SEQUEL TO THIS! You should really look at that to understand what’s going on, but as a quick backstory to this, Adrien found out the scarf he thought his dad gave him was from Marinette, it upset him too much so he gave it back to her.

And then I hated that it was just angst so I made this to make up for it? What started as a one page thing turned into a too-many-pages thing. Hence being like… 2 weeks later for V-day. Oh well! Enjoy!

Also, as for what Marinette actually got Adrien…

Tips for when you feel guilty about eating:

1.Try to figure out what is making you feel guilty. Targeting the issue is the first step in addressing it. What did you eat that caused you to feel this guilt?

2. One you figured out what food caused you to feel this guilt ask yourself why…was it high in calories? High in sugar? Something that you don’t consider healthy?

3. Look at the long term. What you ate might have been unhealthy or not what you planned, but is it going to affect you in a week? Most of the time the answer is going to be no.

4. Did you genuinely enjoy what you ate? No, I’m not asking about the nutritional value or the macros or the calories, I’m asking if you enjoyed this food. Most of the time the answer is going to be yes.

5. Remember that there is more to life than tracking calories and losing weight or becoming fit. You live one life and in that life there is no shame in enjoying delicious foods. There is nothing wrong in eating something just to enjoy it. 

6. Try your best to distance the relationship you have created between food and guilt. While this is a long term goal, it is something you can work on everyday. There are no bad foods, and there are no good foods. Food is simply food and detaching foods from the labels of good and bad is key to reestablishing a healthy relationship with food.

The Baudelaire’s refusal to be grateful for their unfortunate events seemed like such a good message for kids - so I made a thing.

Eh, close enough…

Happy Easter!
