As a white girl, you get told all the time you are a basic bitch. Instead of arguing this, you should fully embrace it. Yeah man, you love your Starbucks and Teavana teas and fruity drinks you get on vacation. We all know that others are going to be jealous of your banana pancakes and fresh grapefruit juice when you get them. Why should you be embarrassed about the food you like?
For starters, smoothies are super frickin’ delicious. Getting an açaí bowl tastes like heaven to you, and it’s even pretty healthy. You can make them in the dorm instead of going out to buy one and you’re not afraid to let others know that you make a super bomb smoothie. When it’s the weekend you can make boozies (booze and smoothies) for your friends. Yeah, it’s basic, but you are getting a lot of nutrients and it tastes amazing.
You are lying if you haven’t once gone to Starbucks and found a drink you like. Yes, a local coffee shop has better coffee, but who goes to Starbucks for a plain old cup of joe? You are going there for a sugary Frappucino or a dirty chai. And once again, yes it is basic. But hey – life is too short to not enjoy the non-fat no sweetener Green Tea Frappucino you have been craving all week.
All the Superfoods
You are stocked up to here with superfoods. And guess what? You love them and don’t care that they are basic as heck. You love using your hemp hearts, protein powder, matcha powder, chia seeds and goji berries. They are quick little additives you can add to your food or drinks to get in some helpful nutrients. Even though they aren’t the cheapest, they’re a good thing to put in your diet.
The non-fat frozen yogurt you have in your freezer is the best. You can eat it and feel a little bit less guilty when you eat the entire thing. It tastes super yummy and it is not as bad for you as when you binge on some Ben and Jerry’s, even though that is totally something you do too.
There is no point in pretending you don’t like your basic white girl food, so why don’t we all embrace our basic side? We would all be much happier if we stopped pretending to not like something cause it’s a white girl thing. Who cares? Let’s all go hang out and get a smoothie. It won’t kill you. I’ll see you there with my typical white girl Camelback covered in stickers.
