If you’ve known me for any appreciable amount of time, you know that I am basically half raccoon: adorable, mischievous, and fueled by an almost entirely garbage diet. I ingest more sugar on the daily than the average oompa loompa sees in their life time and my bloodstream is basically 90% caffeine at this point. Now. it’s not that I don’t like healthy food (I eat all sorts of nuts and berries and other hunter/gatherer ish!), but I’ve never been the type to enjoy having someone try and guilt me into doing something. I mean, I had an 8am yoga class once and the instructor was OBSESSED with shaming us all into becoming vegans and that made me equally OBSESSED with grabbing McDonalds immediately after class (the early bird gets the McGriddle after all). That being said, I’ve come to realize in the last few years that maybe “human landfill” is not a lifestyle choice I should be making. So, I purposely eat salad now, I drink an obscene amount of water (and have at least a quarter of my office hooked on the app Plant Nanny because of it #sorrynotsorry), and I’m presently on the hunt for the best turkey/black bean burger in town (any fellows St. Louisians have any recs?). I’m trying to be better, but on my own terms, ya feel? For me, the path to better health is the one where we’re all real chill and no one rams that Facebook post about how much sugar is in everything down my throat (that’s where the pizza goes, silly). Which is why I was pretty excite bike when one of my favorite local spots, Paisley Boutique, started carrying pieces by one of my new favorite local start ups, The Sarcastic Nutritionist. They’re registered dietitians, foodies, and most importantly, they speak my language (which is pure sarcasm and avocados). I mean, everyone could use a gentle reminder to “eat healthy shit” but that it’s also okay to be a s’moreosaurus every now and then, right?
