Initially, I had texted Jon about wakeboards, but we ended up having the best conversation about nutrition and healthy-living, which is totally ironic, because I’m pretty sure that when we hung out in our teen years we existed on weed, ketchup chips and whiskey. Now we’re old AF with responsibilities like, oh, children, while trying super hard not to get heart disease and die. He gave me an idea for a high-protein breakfast (2 ingredient pancakes made with banana and egg) and I sent him a link to a website with a bunch of salad recipes.
Inspired, I ended up snatching up some organic kale, apples and carrots so that I can juice the longevity out of that shit after my long run on Monday. Sure, I’ll probably back it up with 4 Coronas and some hot wings, but the liver needs a workout too, no?
I juiced enough kale to feed the hippies at Burning Man along with one apple, and all I got was a couple dribbles of juice.
I don’t think I could have choked down more than that much greenery anyway.
After slamming it back, I washed the juicer, packed it neatly back into the crawlspace for the next year or so, and placed my boxed red wine in its rightful spot on the kitchen counter.
It’s that time of year for fresh starts with school back in and sports starting back up and so it’s the perfect time to revamp our eating habits, organize our cupboards and clean the carcinogenic oil byproducts off our shelves.
It sure sounds like a lot of work. I may need a beer to get me through the process, just as soon as I stop burping kale.
Do you do juice? What’s your favourite combo?
Have you ever been to a hippie music festival?
