I’m no David Blaine, but I can turn this:

IMG_6954IMG_6955I know what you’re thinking. EWWWWW! Particularly those fiber nuggets, right? Well, I’ll grant you that I do not eat the fiber stuff because I’m not strong enough to make that happen. But that juice? Here’s a secret. It tastes great! No, really!! And as a migraine sufferer, I drink it as part of my migraine prevention strategy. It seems to help. So to summarize: it tastes really good, helps to reduce my migraine incidence, and it totally grosses out my son. WIN WIN! Ahem, I mean – WIN WIN WIN! I tell him I’ll coat the fiber pieces in chocolate, cook ’em up and toss ’em in his lunch. He recoils in abject horror every time I threaten to do this, and I giggle and clap my hands with sadistic glee. Anna will actually drink the juice with me in small amounts if the recipe meets her exacting requirements ’cause that’s how she rolls.

  1. Well, at least you get fiber nuggets. I get fiber gobs. You’re right, though. It tastes good! Sure, every now and then I’ll make a bum batch, but as long as I make sure to have plenty of fruits in their with the greens, I’m golden.

    1. Oooh, maybe you could do something with your fiber gobs? Drench them in chocolate and market them to Ellwood Thompson’s? It sounds like a thing, doesn’t it? OK, maybe the name could use a little work. Gobs isn’t quite right. Fiber nodules? Ha ha ha ha ha ha. OK, seriously, Fiber morsels? Of course, who am I kidding? I’m sure they already sell something exactly like that. 🙂

    1. It’s hard to argue with that logic — it’s way too sound! 🙂 Throw a piece of celery in there for decoration and you’ve got another veggie represented.
