Chickpeas are My Everything

The cure.

Oh. Hello. I’m Katie. (You can call me Tater.) You may remember me from such healthy living habits as:

  • Sleeping.
  • Daily yoga
  • And ensuring optimum hydration that excludes alcohol

I remember that person, too. I think she’s have a little quarter-life crisis. I’ve rediscovered my love of vodka and there’s nothing you can do to pull me from its warm embrace.

Although I’m a tad out of control as of late, I like to at least think my love of leafy greens will keep me alive until December. That and chickpeas.

While eating this lunch–steamed kale, broccoli, carrots and chickpeas–I said out loud (to myself):


This is a big (TRUE) statement.


The way I see it, life is a big balancing act. Little leafy greens here… lotta vodka there. Up. Down. It’ll even out.

As Emma Stone put it beautifully in a recent interview:

“You are a human being. You live once and life is wonderful. So eat the damn red velvet cake.”
