Just Pretend (Faux Cheese Sticks)

If I am ever in a crisis that can only be helped with greasy food, run to the nearest Sonic and fetch me up an order to mozzarella sticks (ranch AND marinara please) and an order of cheddar peppers.

There are certain foods that I will always want, cheese sticks are on that list.  Even the tiny frozen ones from Sysco.  I mean seriously, love 'em. 

While cruising around the world wide web a few weeks ago, i stumbled upon this page from, um, Seventeen magazine.  Hush.  Good information is good information regardless of where it's from. 

Seventeen Magazine

Apparently, this page holds the key to being clensed and healthy and in overall tip top shape.  And part of being in tip top shape?  Eating faux cheese sticks.   

So...cheese sticks.  If you close your eyes and think happy thoughts, the "toasty cheese sticks" featured on this page ALMOST taste like a deep fried dream.  ALMOST.
