Orange Glazed Carrots and Analyzing my A**

Having a sketchy history with my relationship with my body, you would think I’d try to avoid any judgement on my body.

But lets face it, we are all human, we all judge one another an ourselves. I know, life stinks.

Anyhow, instead of listing all the wonderful thing about my body (because lets face it, being all unicorns and rainbows about something is plain BS) and instead of berating myself I thought why not just do a fun pro/con on a specific body part. Today, I’m gonna zero in on my butt or as us poles call it, dupa!

sorry, this is the best "rear view" view of my booty I could find

Lets get the bad stuff out of the way first!


I’ll admit it, its got some cellulite. Dont ask me why, I’ve always had a little, even when I was an emaciated ass-less mess. Cellulite happens to everyone, and I’m only human and in no way apologizing for it.

Its still an “butt”. I know some people are “ass” people, but I personally don’t get it. I think the fact that they call them “cheeks makes me want to gag a little. I think its a body part thats hard to take seriously. I mean….its a butt!!! I mean it doesnt really serve for anything major like the heart or kidneys, and it can’t get cancer like your breasts or prostate. I can’t exactly skip work and say, “sorry, I broke my ass”.

Its white


Its not flat or teeny, but yet doesnt need its own zipcode. I think its perfectly proportioned!

This might be TMI, but its “firm” yet not rock solid (I really credit the “firmness” to my “chair” yoga poses). Its got just enough “squish” to make sitting comfy!

It looks good in lululemon yoga pants (but all butts do!) and lets face it, when it comes to butts, looks are everything

Alright, lets not be prude….Do you have any Β pro/cons about you butt? Stay tuned , next week, I’ll analyze a different body part!


Ok, I’ve been looking at my last couple of posts and realized I had a ton of desserts! So I bring some vegetable today, but they are slightly sweet…thats my compromise!

  • 4 large carrots peeled and chopped (I made my “star” cutouts but trust me, they take time, feel free to use baby carrots as well!)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (I used fresh squeezed)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. Place carrots in a shallow saucepan, and cover with water. Boil until tender. Drain, and return carrots to pan.
  2. Pour orange juice over carrots, and mix well. Simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, butter, and salt. Heat until butter and sugar melt. Tada! Spectacular carrots!Β

  1. Hahahah!!! Oh Eden, you and your white ass. I love you.

    My Asian ass, unfortunately, is as flat as asphalt. I was walking behind an asian girl wearing skinny jeans today, and I thought to myself, “Why is she wearing tight skinny jeans when her butt is that flat? It’s kinda unattractive…” and then realized that I should be thinking the same thing for myself…Fail.

    Whatever. Flat, fat, cellulite, black or white, all asses are precious! Sitting on your tailbone really, really hurts! We need our asses!

  2. Your ass looks great! HA! Sophia…sitting on your tailbone really hurts. Something i’m sure i’ll never experience πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for admitting to the cellulite and being little. Cellulite I believe is hereditary and is a biatch to keep off.

  3. I think your butt is adorable! (TMI? But it’s true. I’m not a stalker, I swear.)

    maybe I need to to get some Lululemon pants. My butt could use some showcasing.

    I love this idea of listing the pros and cons about a body part. this way you’re not being totally down on yourself but are at the same time accepting yourself for what you are!

    Those carrots are adorable! Maybe I’d eat more carrots if I cut them into cute shapes.

  4. Yes, I must agree with the others. You have a nice ass. πŸ™‚

    My butt is the first place fat goes when I gain weight. It always has been. When I was pregnant, I was little stomach and all ass, I kid you not. Wanna know why? I have stretchmarks all over my ass and not a single one on my stomach. Not a single complaint here about that tho, I mean, nobody except for my husband looks at my bare ass…(TMI? lol)

    I don’t have an exceptionally large butt or anything. It’s proportionate and looks good with the right kind of jeans and pants. My husb would probably like it a little bigger….but thats just men for you.

  5. LOL – girl I think we all have some cellulite! You’ve got a cute booty. I actually like my rear end. Being thin, it’s nice to have a curve somewhere! I have no boobs, straight hips, so I am thankful that my butt isn’t flat too πŸ˜‰

  6. Your butt looks nice, if I may say so! I have a big fat greek butt! I was never able to really like it, but genetically speaking I don’t think it’s ever going anywhere, so I guess I just learned to live with it! But it doesn’t have cellulite. This should count as a pro, right?

  7. Let’s see…Pasty whiteness, stretch marks & cellulite dimples, yep, my ass has ’em all! It’s got some shape too & it’s not too huge, so I’m okay with it. I’m more okay with it than I am my boobs, which have basically the same issues as my butt! Ah, well. It could always be worse.

  8. I am obsessed with those star carrots in a way that makes me wonder (not for the first time) if I am actually a 6 year old trapped in a 26-year-old’s body. I think I will save my attempt at making them for a super stressful day or evening when I can use all the chopping as catharsis for my soul.

    The fact that I just used the word catharsis has returned me to my real age….temporarily at least.

  9. Hahaha! Great, Eden! Gotta love your butt! πŸ˜€ Mine is small and unspectacular, but at least it doesnt hang around. πŸ˜‰

    LOVE your carrots! Especially the star shape! (I know how laborous it is, I’ve tried it myself — but such happiness!) And then the combination with orange juice and fresh butter … dowright perfect! This calls for a shout out once in a while!

  10. LOL! Lordy, you had me sputtering.

    I have a skinny white-girl butt. A lot of weightlifting got it to “cute” status by my last boyfriend. But ANY attribute can be rocked with the right clothes. Some folks just don’t know how to dress right.

    You don’t have that problem though, either the dressing or the butt part!

  11. The cool thing about butts is that there is no one size fits all in the likable size department…some like more junk in the trunk and others like cute and petitie. So if anyone gives you lip about your size or shape go find someone else that will love it!

    And my real concern is…How the heck did you make such cute carrots? I love simple recipes enhanced by shapes or presentation but I have never seen this one. I’m assuming you just cut out chunks with a knife but do you have any strategies cuz I’s like to avoid a trip to the ER if possible!

  12. When it comes to Butts, looks are NOT everything! I always think it’s what is inside that counts (ew!!)…. like how intelligent the butt is, how selfless, how kind, how funny, etc. πŸ˜‰

    OK, looks are everything, and I love everything about how my butt looks. I wish it wasn’t so freakin pale, but I can fix that if I have to…

  13. Haha, I love this! My butt is alright but I’m really jealous of my sisters. She honestly has the perfect ass and if you ever saw her, you would understand why guys like butts. When I’m not being jealous of my sisters bum, I do like my own. Also, while I don’t have any cellulite, I do have a few stretch marks. I guess my butt grew too big too quickly.

  14. Very cute carrots. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the comment. To be honest…I haven’t found one thing I’m lovin about the Twits yet either. And my butt is a little too big and a little too jiggly. But Ryan doesn’t want me to lose it. hehe I think I’ll just go for some more toning!
