I am a carnivore. Seriously. I eat things that have been walking around and swimming around….that’s about it. I don’t eat vegetables, pasta, rice, and most foods that normal humans do. I simply eat meat.
You think I’m exaggerating? Let me tell you a story, friend. When I was approximately 9 years of age, my mother tried to make me eat a pea. A single pea. Being the stubborn child that I was, I put the pea into mouth for ten minutes without chewing or swallowing it. It just sat there. Finally, my mother let me spit it out, and that was the last time that anything green got near my mouth….until today.
My dear friend, Alexandra Stone, whose family owns Stone Hollow Farmstead and The Pantry, has been trying to get me to drink a juice for about a year. When I say juice, I don’t mean something delicious like orange juice. I mean something strange and green like kale, lettuce, and dirt.
Today, I finally gave in and tried multiple juices. I honestly don’t have anything negative to say about any of them. The Detox 1 (pineapple, green apple, coconut water, and mint) was incredibly delicious. I even tried the Organic and Vibrant 1 (romaine hearts, celery, apple, kale, and lemon), and I didn’t dislike it.
Am I going to give up my carnivore ways? Of course not, but I am certainly open to consuming more greens. Apparently, green things are supposed to be good for you…
It’s amazing what a beautiful girl can convince me to do.
