TL;DR (adjective): Short for, too long, didn’t read (shout-out to reddit for making it popular). Just because you’re busy bouncing between working, hitting the gym and cooking a super healthy dinner (all before happy hour ends), doesn’t mean you should miss out on the latest and greatist. You’ll find the TL;DR on the bottom of our NEWS articles which sums everything up (just be sure to read the rest of the article when you have time).

Being a G (adjective): Being a G(reatist) is about the art of becoming great by making at least one healthier decision per week.

Holy Gr-amoly (ajd): A way to emphasize how cool something you read on the Greatist website was!

Example: Did you know tart cherry juice helps reduce muscle soreness? Holy Gr-amoly that’s awesome news!

Superfood (adj): These are food all-stars which get the Greatist stamp of approval in terms of nutritional bang-for-your-buck. It’s like getting a gold star for being awesome. Awesomely delicious.

Example: Because strawberries are low-calorie, high in antioxidants and play a role in reducing bad LDL cholesterol, they are a grocery market superfood!

Dangerfood (adj): Watch out! These foods aren’t as healthy as you might thing and we’re calling their supposedly healthy bluff.
