chicken bog.

remember that time i had three different kinds of chicken bog three days in a row?
let me explain.

friday: my across the street neighbors were selling chicken bog tickets a few weeks ago for a church fundraiser. church chicken bog is always the best. so of course i purchased a plate. there was chicken and sausage in it. 
just the way i like it :)

saturday: i went to a family reunion. there was no way i could have known what kind of food would be served. low and behold, chicken bog. however, this was not your average chicken bog. it had so many different kinds of meat in it. some of which i still don't think i know. i can tell you that there was chicken, sausage and deer meat in it for sure. it was the absolute best chicken bog i have ever tasted in my life.
sorry not sorry.

sunday: parents provided dinner for youth group sunday night. chicken bog, w/ just chicken (in case you were wondering). it was delicious. and the best green beans were served along side of it.

i only realize now how ridiculous chicken bog three days in a row sounds. 

and tomorrow night i'm going to the 15th annual oyster roast at the Florence Museum.
mmm mmm good :)

it has now been 250 days since i last ate fast food :)
i am so close to a year!
at this point, it feels like i won't really ever want it again.
though recently i went into a wendy's w/ some people and got a salad, yet the smell of those fries made me want some.
of course i didn't get any.
and i just don't think they would taste the same.
i depended on fast food to fill this hunger void quickly which just equalled long term nastiness, but now i've replaced that void w/ things that are so much tastier and so much better for my body.

one of the best things about not eating fast food is feeling so much better and having more energy.
as much as i love fries i love chips, and now i replace them at lunch w/ either a salad, grapes or clementines (which i lovingly refer to as fruit crack!)
and at night when i'm craving something salty and crunchy i make popcorn w/ coconut oil. 
or i buy the plain kind from the store and put some lemon pepper seasoning on it.

when a year rolls around at the end of february 2014, i'm not so sure i'm just gonna run back to those golden arches.
i almost never want to have it again.
but ask me that in three days and i may say something different :)

to anyone who thinks they can't do this, let me be the first to tell you that you can! 
fast food is not what you need it's what you want, in that moment.
choosing healthier options will always be what you need and better for your body and your wallet in the long run.
it will be hard, but it will be worth it.
