Although living a healthy life is a huge part of my mission and who I am, I am a big believer in a good splurge every now and again. I actually think that indulging in a few special treats can be good for you. First, it helps tame our daily cravings. When we tell ourselves that we are never allowed to have another cookie or piece of bread then all we can think about is the cookie or bread! If we allow ourselves to enjoy those treats every once in a while, then we can get a better handle on our cravings. Second, when we overdo it on unhealthy food or alcohol, we really feel the effects of it the next day. Especially when we've been eating clean. So, it gets us back on the healthy train really quickly and we aren't tempted by those treats for a while. Lastly, life just kinda sucks when we don't allow ourselves to enjoy everything that it has to offer.
