I thought this was funny…
A friend of mine jokingly called me a ‘health nut’ the other day.
I’ve been a vegetarian for almost 20 years, in the gym 4-5 times per week. So I do consider myself pretty health conscious.
I’ve been called this numerous times, so it really wasn’t a big deal.
But I stopped to think about that phrase… “health nut”. Why do I have to be a “nut” because I have a healthy lifestyle?
It’s almost like I’m being punished for being healthy. People don’t go around calling people who like cake… “cake nuts”. Or I’ve never heard anyone say, “he’s a double cheese burger nut.”
Sometimes our thinking can be soooo backwards! 🙂
