I could never give up cheese.
I can't bake without butter and eggs.
I can't afford healthy foods.
I don't have time to cook.
If you want to stop eating cheese, you can and you will. You choose to eat it. You control what you put into your mouth.
If you want to learn to bake without cow milk, cow butter and chicken eggs, there are thousands of recipes out there waiting for you and suitable ingredient alternatives. People have already done the work for you and created recipes.. you just have to click 'print' or open the cookbook.
If you stopped buying cigarettes, alcohol, designer purses, and shitty, processed, fast, unhealthy and junky food .. you'd have plenty of money for vegetables, fruits, grains and nuts. If you started eating right you'd probably get off the medications you're spending money on every month too.
You choose not to make the time to cook. There are very few people that don't have the time to cook. I know people that have full-time jobs, have kids, go to college, have second jobs, volunteer, and have hobbies and they all manage to work in cooking if they choose to. It's a priority and a choice that you aren't making. Taking a few hours to prep food for the week is a choice you need to make.
If you want to do something.. you will. If you don't want to do something then own that... say 'I don't want to do it' instead of making an excuse why you can't. But.. if you decide to make those choices then you need to accept that you may never have what you want.
