Writing this post while eating a medium sized bag of bite sized twizzlers, vegan and awesome. Also there is 4.5 grams of protein in the bag. How I have no idea. So there is something healthy in it. But I did stop myself from buying pop and decided on Naked Juice instead. So I have some self control. Lol. But I need to break a 20 so I’ll probably go to a cafe before class and get a hot chocolate, with almond milk and no whipped cream.
90% of the time I’m eating whole plant foods. But sometimes it’s nice to eat something relatively unhealthy, or extremely unhealthy. Usually a few weeks at the end of each month. If you know what I mean.
My take is this. As long as you’re not eating candy and pop every day, or multiple times a day. It’s not necessary “bad” for you. I’m vegan for ethical reasons so all the candy and sweets that I eat are obviously vegan. So eat your candy, cupcakes, or pop but keep it in moderation and vegan.
List of some of the vegan candy/sweets (if you were wondering, this is in the U.S. not sure about other countries):
- Sour Patch Kids
- Swedish Fish
- Dum Dums
- Fruit by the Foot
- Jolly Rancher Hard Candies
- Some Lay’s Potato Chips (Salt and Vinegar, Original, BBQ to name a few)
- Smarties (only in the U.S.)
- Original Sun Chips
