Ventured today into our local smoothie and wrap place for the first time in a couple of years. I was less intimidated — this time I knew what spirulina was. Well, sorta, anyway. They had a juice combo called “cold prevention” or something like that. It had carrot juice, ginger, lime lemon (thanks, editrix!), orange juice and another ingredient my eye somehow skipped over. It sounded pretty good, so I thought I’d better order it, although “prevention” seemed less like the order of the day than “cure.”

The other ingredient, I noticed only after taking a sip of the wretched stuff, was garlic. Gah!

I dutifully choked it down — it was nasty, but it was also four bucks — and now I’m left to ponder the unpleasant possibility that I might be feeling even worse now if I hadn’t.

    at least you didn’t get the one with “carrots, celery and beets.” Can any human actually consume such a vile concoction? Aiee!

    Sorry, loudfan, but I wouldn’t put “carrots, celery and beets” in the same yuckness league with “ginger, orange, lemon, carrot and GARLIC.” Vile concoction maybe, but it’s a reasonable combination for a soup or a salad, so I can sort-of understand the leap to smoothie. Not that I’d ever order one myself. Beets are rather ack.

    I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.
