it is perfectly okay not to eat perfectly

It is perfectly okay to eat more one day and less the next. It is actually very normal.

It is perfectly okay to balance your food choices over a week and not lock into or worry about daily targets.

It is perfectly okay to save up red-extras (you might call them forbidden foods but I don’t) for a feast.
