"feelings of admiration and adoration which a girl has for another girl, without wanting to shag said girl."
But I'm digressing. Back to the list. I'm not sure if I have a specific type. All of the women below have in common that they look healthy and active. If you have a critical PC eye, you might have noticed that they are all white. That does not mean I have a preference for only white people. Au contraire! My general girl crushes palate is quite fusion and include Zoe Sadana who pulls of green or blue complexions very well, Aishwara Rai or Michelle "The Lady" Yeoh. But since this is a Paleo blog I have to stick to the paleo theme, and it seems that the internet is more prone to share the eating habits of white people. Or I just suck at doing research.
Anyway, on to the list. Paleo and fabulous:
Or shall we say "Rooooondaaaa Rrrrrrroouuusey!" This MMA fighter enchanted me when I saw her performing that infamous trademark arm-bar.
She set a record by finishing a fight in 14 seconds by countering Cat Zigano's knee attack and immediately locking her opponent's elbow over her hip. Zigano had no choice to admit defeat by tapping out. You can watch the lighting quick victory as gif here. Prepare to utter "whoa".

The diet you associate with yoga is a vegan or vegetarian diet. During my 200h yoga teacher's training, it was suggested to be vegetarian for the duration of the training. Again, I'm all good with people following a balanced vegetarian or vegan diet as long as their choice was informed and don't turn it into a religion. Still, it's nice to know that I'm not the only yoga teacher out there who believes that a good organic grass-fed steak upgrades a natural food diet and also that bacon is the ultimate umami taste booster. Namaste sister!
Oh, Kylie! I even liked you on Street Fighter. Yup, she's in there together with Jean-Claude Van Damme. Behind that petite 1.52 m frame is a talented entertainer and breast cancer survivor.
What I like about her is that she manages to come across as strong and vulnerable at the same time. Being open how she felt after her diagnosis helped many women in her situation to cope with their own fears and uncertainties. Even if you just a little emotional pick-me-up, get some Kylie into your playlist.
Denise Minger single-handedly debunked the main conclusions of The China Study conducted by Dr. T. Colin Campbell. Her analysis as so systematically thorough that Dr. Campbell believed a trained academic was targeting him instead of an English major with a knack for statistics.
Her witty blog post went viral in the nutrition community. In 2014, she released her book Death by Food Pyramid which would become a best-seller and it is one of my favourite nutrition books.
Honestly, what I like about her most is that if I ever met this 2014 Crossfit winner we could look each other eye to eye.... literally. She's as tall as me and 5 cm taller than Kylie Minogue! And that's where the similarities end. Because unlike Camille Leblanc-Bazinet I would not be able to squat snatch Kylie Minogue holding a cocker spaniel.
Leblanc-Bazinet is an awesome athlete who also comes across as vulnerable and awkward at times which make this superwoman more approachable and very likable.
Yes, it seems I do have a weakness for goofy talented people. And Jennifer Lawrence definitely belongs to that category. Remember when she stumbled her way to that Oscar and into our hearts? She is the kind of girl you want hang out with while eating a naked burger, watching Try Guys Buzzfeed Videos and drinking some tequila shots. She is one of those people who, if she was cast in The Game of Thrones, you never want to see killed of off. I think that would even upset me more if Aria Stark died. I stopped watching until season 3 because my sister revealed a few details which disturbed my sensitive disposition. But every season I check that Aria is still alive. If R.R. Martin ever decides to kill her off I can always imagine that she will be reborn as Katniss Aberdeen because my brain will not be bound by genres.
