Have your ______, and eat it too.
Michaela, Yummiewear's founder here.
I wanted to personally introduce to you our new Fill in the Blank Shirt.
I am so excited to launch this new t-shirt design because it represents the essence of where Yummiewear started.
The saying goes, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too”, meaning you can’t have it all. I beg to differ though — at least when it comes to food.
You see, I started Yummiewear during my figure competition days.
This was a time filled with grueling workouts and a strict diet. I have always loved a variety of foods. However, in order to get into peak condition, I had to buckle down and sacrifice.
That’s right, sacrifice. Sacrifice —that pizza, those burgers, and my beloved greek food dinners —for the medal.
After a year of competing, my body was laser-toned, but my mind lacked the same luster. Why?
Well, simply put, my life was missing a piece of what made me me. I am a foodie, after all!
Yummiewear became a way for me to celebrate comfort foods with which society often has a complicated relationship.
After having my diet stripped down to tilapia and broccoli every day, I realized that life is not about sacrifice. It’s actually all about balance.
ALL food is a part of life.
Now I use a simple equation to remind myself of that:
balance > sacrifice
So, going back to the saying above: by choosing balance over sacrifice “you can have your cake and eat it too”. Maybe not every day, but you can have it all in moderation.
