There’s No Juice in Kale

You thought I was kidding about the whole juicing thing? Well, you don’t know me very well. If there’s ONE thing I want more than anything, it’s to be healthy. And by “healthy”, I obviously mean skinny.

JD made the first batch of Mean Green. We needed to drink 16 ounces each so we used 8 stalks of celery, a piece of ginger, 1 cucumber, 1 lemon, 6 apples, 2 carrots and a whole bunch of kale.

Trust me, it looks better than it tastes. But I got my glass down and felt fairly good about the whole thing. Until JD explained that TWO glasses made 16 ounces. Awesome.

At least it was filling. I didn’t get hungry again until late afternoon, at which point I made a NORMAL juicy drink of apples and lemon. After the dirt drink from before, it actually tasted good.

Then I made BBQ pork chops for Moon while JD and I had another round of kale. That’s my daughter, wondering how she got such smart parents.

If you’re interested in “detoxing” your body, check out the website at Believe it not, some of the recipes actually sound decent. But then again, I just drank what tasted like the bottom of a farmer’s shoe, so anything sounds good at this point.

  1. I think you could find something better to put in that drink – have you tried castor oil. It is really good I had it 46 years ago and still remember how great it tasted.
