A Love Letter To Avocado Toast

Sincerely, millennials.


Dear Avocado Toast,

I love you.

First things first, I think you're the greatest breakfast food in the whole world. You're packed with vitamins and a whole bunch of other tasty health benefits. You're so versatile, too—you can pair with eggs or tomato or other fun things—the possibilities are endless!

I love you avocado toast, but I think there's a lot of people who don't quite understand your appeal.

I mean, you're so popular with us young folk that older people assume you're a silly trend. But you are so much more than that! I guess more than a surface level judgement is too much to ask of the same generation that thought we wanted participation trophies. Don't worry, we lowly millennials understand. We sometimes take a break from killing various industries to indulge ourselves in good brunch food.

I mean we really love brunch food. There isn't a whole lot that can distract us from such a depressing political environment, incredibly high levels of anxiety, and our crippling student debt quite like mimosas with the girls.

Amirite, ladies?!

I like to think that even if you didn't photograph so well for the #gram, I would still love you regardless. I mean, we may be the generation of selfies, but we're also the generation of acceptance and self-love.

We understand how important it is to like and embrace yourself for who you really are! It's 2018, after all. People can love whoever they want to, however they want to! They can dress in whatever makes them feel good! They can even put cucumbers in their water if they want to get really crazy!

I think you have a lot that's worth loving, avocado toast.

Anyways, avocado toast, I can't chat for much longer. I have a lot to do—I mean, rent, student loans, basic health care, and various life expenses can't pay themselves (and evidently can't be paid much better by the 2 jobs I'm underemployed at!).

Stay perfect. There are not many things left that are.

Hope to see you soon!

MaryEllen Reider

I was lucky enough to meet MaryEllen Reider over a decade ago as a fellow freshman in college. Since then, I had the luxury of being able to witness her evolution from the faithful companion I went to my first job fair with to the woman who is now a pioneer in destigmatizing the portrayal of women's reproductive health.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.

Ever since the current upheaval of societal silence happening in the country caused by the #BlackLivesMatter movement, there has been a bigger push for people to support Black-owned businesses.

Granted, there are a lot fo Black-owned businesses to support, it just takes time to find them. With that being said, fashion is a sector, just like any sector really, in a culture that still has people of color calling out for more diversity.
