My best friend kept telling me about this movie, “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.” It’s about a guy who goes on a juicing diet. Compelling, right? Yeah, me neither. That’s why it took me a while until I watched it on Netflix. (You can watch it on YouTube for $1.99 if you want.)
And you know what? It was really good, even funny. I told one of my brothers about it, and he started juicing. The other day, he even sent me a juicer as a thank-you present. So now I’m juicing!
I have to admit, the juice I made yesterday sucked. It was all fruit and much too sweet. Today’s is much better: Carrots, a cucumber, some kale, a green apple and a couple slices of mango. It tastes really good! If only it didn’t look like baby diarrhea.
Vegetables are expensive, though. I bought this first batch at the supermarket, but it will only last a few days. I’ll be headed to one of the produce outlets (really cheap, everything’s ripe so you have to use it fast) to pick up some more.
P.S. I’ve now discovered that people like me who are allergic to grass shouldn’t eat chard. So I won’t, ever again. Hopefully my sinuses will die down soon.
