Not So Easy Greens

I bought a bottle of Odwalla Superfood “Easy Greens,” just to tide me over between lunch and dinner yesterday. It’s thick and goopy and grainy and green, and the taste is strongly evocative of the ripe, heady waters of Manila Bay at peak Red Tide season. Here are the ingredients on the label:

Apple Juice, Peaches, Mangoes, Strawberries, Bananas, Spirulina (1230 mg), Soy Lecithin, Open Cell Chlorella (240 mg), Royal Jelly, Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, Wheat Sprouts, Jerusalem Artichoke, Lemon Bioflavonoid, Nova Scotia Dulse, and Soylent Hippie (may contain trace amounts of patchouli).*

Get used to it, folks; if the blurbs on the labelling are to be believed, after Peak Oil, Peak Meat, Peak Dairy, and Peak Soy, this will be the Food of Tomorrow!

* Humor. Did not contain hippie, and it didn’t taste half bad.

    Yuk. I can’t imagine anything more toxic than that.

    By the way, my wife went to UST.

    I’ve come to like the taste of this stuff. However, it has about the save carb/sugars profile as plain old orange juice so you will bet the same insulin swing so I’m still looking for a ‘good’ packaged vegetable juice. In the meantime I’m using my juicer more and more.
