Chicken Quickie

You know, people give SO many excuses to not eat healthy, workout out + lose weight. I don’t have time. Gyms cost so much money! I’m not creative in the kitchen. If only you could cook for me, I’d do it. <— that's my favorite. Healthy food is SO expensive. <— I lied earlier, this is my favorite. It’s not freaking true. Any of those things. Gym memberships are not expensive they just have a contract cause they know people like the ones that say the stuff from above will not commit to anything until life smacks them in the face. Yes, I’m all for helping people but I don’t understand why lie + make excuses when eating healthy can be inexpensive if you’re not shopping gourmet. Even if I cook for you, you’re not going to do anything because you won’t do it for you. That’s why I write this blog! Oh, and the cookbook of course. I want to make it easy. I do all the work figuring out the recipes till they’re perfect + teach you how to do it at home. I bring my kitchen to your table. Now, why am I ranting you ask? Because I’m traveling in ATL with Marylex for 8 days to enjoy the city but most of all for Passion Conference. To save money + make sure we stay in point with healthy eating, we went to the local Kroger grocery store to get groceries for all meals for this week (snacks we brought from home). Do you know how much we spent for the healthiest stuff for over 30 meals (multiply this by two)? $67 whopping dollars!!! And, that grand total included toothpaste I bought on super sale to take home. So now, what’s your excuse???? Love you guys just had to rant, xo.
