The other day I was on the phone with a guy friend and he was talking about seeing his ‘fat ass’ in a picture. I was like “oh yeah!” because I’m all about a fat bootie. But as we kept talking I realized he meant it in a negative way. I was confused and finally let him know that a fat ass is a good thing. Own that fat ass thanks.
If anyone overheard us it was probably a super weird conversation…
“A fat ass is a good thing! It’s a compliment if someone says you have a fat ass!” – Monican
“….” – friend was silent as he tried to figure out if this was a joke or a trap or something.
“Maybe it’s a cultural thing? But still, you should know for future reference.” – Monican
So yeah, I’ll admit that maybe it’s a cultural thing and some people enjoy a bootie more than others. I’m Hispanic and I’m aware that a lot of women have curves and I love it.
I don’t think the word ‘fat’ is a 4 letter word and it doesn’t have to be negative. My tiny circle of friend and I use it in a funny or descriptive way but not necessarily in a negative way. (Friend not pluralized is not an error.)
The point is – you can be fat and awesome! Avocados are a great example of something that’s fat and amazing!! And here’s some more stuff that falls in the Fat and Awesome category…

But maybe nuts in moderation, which I’m not a fan of. I eat a lot of nuts and was running low so I got this huge bucket of mixed nuts from Smart & Final yesterday. I checked out the servings – supposedly there are 32 servings in this container. So, it should take me 32 days to eat it all.
Any guesses on how long it actually will take?
God bless America. God bless California. God bless Avocados.
This reminds me I haven’t made my Creamy Avocado Sauce Recipe in so long!
Dear anyone working on their bikini body,
Manatees live at the beach (kinda) and have no problem rocking their curves. Own it.
4. Chia seeds.
Check out this easy Banana Chia Pudding recipe if you have some on hand.
5. Olive Oil.
Bread with olive oil or anything else for that matter is life.
My favorite dinner is salmon with carbs and veggies.
7. Peanut Butter.
PB on toast is a great pre-run food because it has carbs to give ya energy and the fats keep you full. Boom.
