You've got the choice of a big salad with grilled chicken OR a burger for your lunch. You think...
I'll have the burger BUT with a side salad instead of fries.
What does it matter? I have crappy genes anyway. I'll have the burger and fries.
No contest. Salad with chicken. That's who I am.

Let's face it - until now, you've been a bit of a Food Clown (or, as we like to say, a Master of Food Clownery). You may have picked up some bad information or got caught up in the latest food fad. Blame it on a friend, the scientists, your social media buddies, or an inauspicious astrological year. Maybe your dog ate your willpower, or an alien abduction left you feeling overly hungry this year. You've got this. It's time to put aside Food Clownish- ways and be the rockstar of good health you were born to be!
All the hype and misinformation out there hasn't fooled you! You've got it together. All that healthy eating is good for your big brain, Nutritional Einstein! Get out there and inspire somebody else to eat the way you do. The world needs you... step away from the chalkboard and share your healthy eating savvy!
Sure, you've got some things to improve, but you're definitely ahead of the pack. Well done you! Pat yourself on the back, give yourself a fist bump, pull a Usain Bolt, do a little dance. Now use that celebratory energy to pick one quiz question you know you could do better on, and do it. You rock!
