    Romance at the Meat Counter: My Quest for Beefy Choices

    Seeking Evening Companionship

    I am fed up with bringing home deceptive groceries, possibly hiding unwanted antibiotics, pesticides, and hormones. Can I rekindle my love, trust, and simple enjoyment with quality, happy meat? Is it possible you are out there, not overpriced? Do you exist?

    ~ Signed, Ima B. Leever 

    With no one replying to my want ad, I headed out on my own. While shopping at my local Whole Foods market, a grocery store dedicated to “selling the highest quality natural and organic products,” I rounded the grocery aisle between dairy and seafood and gasped at what I saw in the meat section. With giddy excitement, I thought perhaps I might have found my soul meat.

    Good Clean Love (Discount Included)

    Psst. Over here. We need to talk about those products in your nightstand: Lube. Feminine wash. Sexual well being. Actually, forget the whisper.  The taboo around talking about products like lube and feminine wash is likely what’s allowed the industry to get away with using toxic chemicals for so long. So let’s raise our voices, huh?

    This Boyfriend's Simple Fragrance Request

    “I am SO proud of you!”

    …I told my boyfriend one night a few weeks back. Craig had just arrived home from work and we were sitting down to dinner, catching up on the day. 

    “The lobby at work smelled like a Febreze factory!” he had just told me.“So I emailed someone and said that we need to get those out of the bathrooms. That we just can’t be exposing our athletes, clients, and employees to potentially carcinogenic chemicals.” 

    Craig works for a company that trains elite and professional athletes, military operators, and corporate wellness clients worldwide. In the name of health and for the sake of the thousands of people who walk through the front doors and into that lobby, he knew they could do better.

    My heart skipped a beat. Is there anything more romantic than environmental health advocacy?
