Case in point: "Very Green Juice Smoothie".
I happened to be home yesterday when K came home for lunch. We each fixed ourselves something to eat. ME: a salami and cheese sandwich on sourdough bread, some barbecue potato chips, and some sweet tea. K: some of this ^ stuff and some "cranberry almond grain medley with barley, wheatberries, wild rice, and quinoa." *quin....what?*
I'm sure my dad would have said, "It looks like its already been eaten once."
She tried to hide it, but I saw her take a little bite of the stuff that's usually found in a feed bag, then take a little sip of the green stuff, then make a face like she'd just licked a car tire.
I don't think many men would put themselves through that. We're apparently less scared of dying than we are of eating cranberries with almonds, barley, wheatberries, wild rice, and quinoa.
Especially after I looked up quinoa and found this:
Quinoa (// or //, Spanish: quinua, from Quechua: kinwa), a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium), is a grain crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, as it is not a member of the true grass family. As a chenopod, quinoa is closely related to species such as beetroots, spinach and tumbleweeds.
So, how bad do YOU want to live?
EDIT: Now she's just being gross. K just left for work with her "breakfast":
Some purple stuff mixed with her green stuff to make mud colored stuff, blaspheming my Texas Tech tumbler in the process. :(
