What’s That You’re Drinking…?24
Over the years, as my diet has changed and gotten more and more green and less and less processed, I’ve gotten used to the looks of my friends and family who quizzically look at what I’m eating like it’s something totally alien.
Okay, so I’ll admit that sometimes I am eating what many would consider “weird stuff” — like chomping on handfuls of raw kale, or rehydrating chia seeds in my coffee or gulping down kefir. But, on the whole, I’m usually eating fruits and veggies that you’ve grown up seeing at the grocery store, like spinach, bell peppers, apples, mushrooms, zucchini and carrots.
However, as I’ve gotten more and more brave with my NutriBlasts, I’ve taken the perceived “weirdness” to a new level, for my green smoothies have now turned a brownish-purple. Maybe not the most appetizing looking smoothies, but I swear they are delicious!
My friends though? They don’t’ believe me. No matter how many times I tell them what’s in it (kale, cucumber, blueberries, banana, brazil nuts and chocolate protein powder) and how delicious it is, they just won’t take a sip. And, whenever they see me drinking one (which is often), they give me that same quizzical expression of “Why on earth would you drink that?”
Mark my words though…one of these days I’ll get them to try it! I shall not give up! Anyone have any good tricks — ahem, I mean ideas — on how to encourage friends or family without being overly pushy? Would love to hear ‘em!
