I’m a few days late but this is one of my favorite posts from Whole9.
It’s amazing how we can get so wrapped up in the idea of a holiday or special occasion that we allow the mundane to take on an unwarranted aura of specialness. Case in point: Halloween candy.
It’s the same unappealing, overly-processed, sugar-laden non-food that we avoid in our day-to-day lives, but dress it up in new packaging with cartoon ghosts & monsters, serve it in cute little bite-size servings and all of a sudden it becomes irresistible.
But as Dallas & Melissa remind us:
"You’re a grown-up. You earn your own money. And if you wanted a Snickers, a Kit-Kat, or a bag of Peanut M&Ms, you can walk right into any grocery store, gas station or convenience mart and buy one.”
Or don’t. Make your dietary digressions truly special. Mass-market candy probably will not rate.
