Thug Kitchen's NSFW Cookbook Is For People Who Eat Like They Give A F*ck

Share

Struggling to eat healthy these days? Well, maybe it's time to add Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give a F*ck to your Amazon wishlist. It's the ultimate cookbook for anyone who has ever wanted to eat better, the NSFW way.

Now before you pass this off as a lead-up to another Funny or Die sketch, you should probably know that Thug Kitchen is, in fact, very real. AdWeek even went so far as to call the book a "shining beacon of motivation to get you going in your quest for wholesome living."

So what should you expect from Thug Kitchen? Well, according to the book's trailer (yes, the book even has its own explicit trailer), it's full of "plant-based recipes" for people who suffer from "Chronic Drive-Thru Dinners," "Meat Sweats," "Gut Rot," "Sugar Shakes" — or, you know, anyone who just wants to get their "sh*t together."

There's also an entire Thug Kitchen blog — which has actually been around since August 2012, says Epicurious — chock full of "crazy f*cking delicious" recipes, like chickpea tabbouleh, roasted tomato soup, and even "motherf*cking homemade ice cream." The vegan blog has even been recognized by actress/health guru Gwyneth Paltrow, says Jezebel.

So what exactly is Thug Kitchen trying to do here, you ask? According to Thug Kitchen's website, it's about the fact that anyone can get healthy...or healthier:

Now, naturally with something that involves this much humor and profanity, it only makes sense that other blogs would question Thug Kitchen — especially after it was revealed that its creators were white — says Bethonie Butler in a blog piece for the Washington Post. The Root even went so far as to label the blog a "Recipe in Blackface." Which strikes me as a pretty racist thing to say in itself — do people of color corner the market on profanity? On being thugs? That's a pretty insulting thing to indicate. Butler asks an important question in regards to Thug Kitchen's distinct brand of humor: "Does it matter that the bloggers behind Thug Kitchen are white?" After all, we're all trying to get healthy here.

Sure, Thug Kitchen might not be for everyone. But if you're inspired by humor and want to get healthy, it could be worth checking out.
