Chub Rub…and other words that make me want to scream.


Before I get into the delightful food portion of today’s post, I need to rant. Today’s rant is about a term I was recently taught: ‘Chub Rub’. Am I the only one who doesn’t know what this means? Probably, BUT, in case you are out of the loop, like me, let me fill you in.

Chub Rub: The chaffing from skin to skin contact, commonly experienced for all of those who don’t have a thigh gap.

The worst, right? I only discovered this term because I complained to a friend about this strange rash I was getting on the inside of my thigh….she quickly informed me that I was being initiated to ‘Chub Rub’….while the term is hilarious, it makes me feel like a whale. I thought that it was already established that thigh gaps are not natural on women and that curves should be cultivated. Now, when I look down at my red inner thigh I feel totally frustrated.

However, I’m learning that while I don’t have the thigh gap that I had for over 5 years, I also don’t get confused for a little boy (this happened in Japan). So, the takeaway? Cultivate Curves, not Criticism. 

Rant over, now time for the nosh.
