I’ve had the same mentality for quite a while now, especially with the food you buy at the grocery.
I pay extra for the healthier/fresh foods, so then I don’t pay more on my health later in life.
Our bodies are like well-oiled vehicles. Whatever we put into it, high octane, pure oil or gasoline or whatnot, the better it’s going to run. The same goes for our bodies. After a prolonged period of time eating junk food, fast food, high fat content food, and so on, we’re eventually going to see the consequences. It’s amazing how much our diet reflects how we see ourselves and how we feel.
And it’s not about a morning cup of coffee, whether you’ve had your caffeine jump start or not, it’s about getting as many veggies and fruits into your diet as possible. Try to have an apple, instead of chips for a snack. If you’d like to have a cute date night with a significant other, go shopping together, choose healthy options, and fix it together.
The more we get educated on healthy food options and making such food taste wonderful, the more we will be apt to buy and eat these foods every day. Your diet can be correlated with your relationship with God. The more time you spend with Him, whether it’s in prayer or His word, the more fulfilling your life will be.
Don’t skimp! Take the time to establish your relationship with Jesus Christ and your diet.
