Blended family, teenagers and their love of junk food. What's a health conscious mother to do?

So, this is the purple shed, located in my backyard, is where I contemplate, plan and document my uncommon, sweetly congruent life, which has only been made possible sheer wildness, a flexible green-ness and a concentrated soulfulness.
Let me explain.
Wild: Becoming awake and vibrantly healthy has been a process of un-indoctrinating myself: shunning the status quo of the standard American diet, questioning what the beauty industry tells me I need to have, and evicting my own lazy habits and negative thoughts. This has taken tenacious rebellion, a conscious choosing and a wild commitment - every day - because change isn't easy, especially when it flies in the face of how I was raised and what my culture considers "normal."
Green: Young, supple and flexible are my green ideals and synonymous with being more curious than sure, an attitude that led me to opt for plant-based foods and cruelty-free beauty products, for my own health and sustaining the planet.
Soul: To change my physique, or my mindset or to do my part for our planet, I've needed to make a whole bunch of consistent, conscious choices, which became a whole bunch easier when I sat in daily meditation.
No big mystery here. I sit quietly, looking like I'm doing nothing, but am actually connecting to myself, to humanity and to the divine energy pulsing in and between everything. In this state, with journal and pen by my side, I make my wild, green, soul-ful plans, make lists and get it done!
