It’s no secret that I love yogurt.
I stock up and get really, really upset when my local shop has none in stock.
Since my visit to the US earlier this year, I’ve been in love with Chobani. The trip just happened to coincide with the company’s launch in Australia, so life’s been pretty great since!
Yogurt has to be a food group. I eat about half a kilo a day, and I’m a massive fan of the protein you get from it.
Because…drum roll please…
I like my food healthy and lean.
My ideal dinner looks something like this:
Not really. More like this:
That’s Mr The Rake’s breakfast.
Which he only eats on the weekend. And not until 11am. And it’s always eggs and bacon.
While he was eating this, I was onto my mid-morning snack and some green tea.
This highlights perfectly the difference between Mr The Rake and I.
I love him like crazy, and we get along really well. We’ve been together for nearly five years, so clearly something works.
But there is no shared love of food and fitness.
I like long runs on a Saturday morning.
Mr The Rake prefers to stay in bed for a few hours and then play video games or read the news.
I go out of my way to buy fresh vegetables and lean protein.
Mr The Rake prefers his food with fewer vegetables, lots of red meat, and a lot more oil.
And you know what? That’s ok!
If Mr The Rake wasn’t around to balance me out, I’d become a super stressed out obsessive compulsive mess.
So we make it work in our own way. I run, he chills out. When we cook, I just give him the extra stuff that I don’t want and he lets me have most of the veggies.
For us, it works.
But I’m curious. If you have a partner, do they share your fitness enthusiasm or hatred? If you are single, do you look for similar food and fitness interests in a partner?
What’s your ideal relationship balance when it comes to fitness?
What’s your favourite food?
