Yeppers, another Monday! More Monday rambles:
I have to admit something- I had been pooh poohing this national obsession with raw greens, especially Kale. Might be a hand me down prejudice from my mom who refused to even say that word. She said that she ate so much of it growing up in a working class Italian family that she never wanted it EVER EVER again. Kale, well it grows like a weed so it was plentiful in their garden. My great aunt grew it in her teeny side yard and it looked nice but evil to me! Early this summer I decided to get a green mango smoothie from this little place where I usually get coffee. It had baby spinach and KALE in it. Surprise, surprise, surprise as Gomer Pyle used to say. It was delicious! So I decided to give it a go at home. I dusted off my old blender (a wedding gift in 1972) and bought some mixed smoothie greens WITH kale and used a big handful along with my Greek yogurt, a banana and a peach. Wow, tasty. So I have been having a smoothie as lunch every day for about two weeks now. I think I feel better. I really do. Cool huh? Never too old to learn something.
I’m hoping that it isn’t a placebo effect because it’s still a ridiculously long election season ahead. I have to admit that the past few days I have been enjoying watching Republican Party trying to solve a problem like the Donald; but I am NOT happy with some of the on-line Clinton sites bashing Bernie. I wish they would not go down that road. Let the Republicans bash each other. We need solidarity. The choices on the right are too dangerous to let win because we tore each other down.
Wow, we’ve picked up a goodly number of new folks on Facebook and our on-line magazine. Welcome, welcome all.
Peace (and Kale)
