Caution: Do not try this at home
Recently I read a great way to add vitamins and such to a protein drink was to blend in a handful of spinach. "You wont even taste it if you mix fruit in as well", the article said. HMMM..ok, I will give it a try. So I add a handful of spinach and blueberries. NICE!
The next time I go to make my drink I notice an unopened baby spring mix in the fridge. Being the frugal shopper I am, I think, I need to eat that before it goes bad. Tada! I can substitute that for the spinach! Looking farther, I see some strawberries, of course, these are not blueberries, but I have that frugal mentality thing going on so they come along for the ride.*
I grab a handful and stuff it into the blender. Thinking to myself, "geez, when I made this the first time, I didn't taste the spinach at all". So another handful of spring mix goes in. Now for the strawberries. I nip the green tops off on a few then think, "why", I got all that other green stuff in there, a lil more can't hurt", so 6 strawberries, green tops included, tossed in. Then I add the whey protein and water.*

As I watch the mixture whirling in the blender I think, "hmmm, its a tad bit greener than last time and a lot more of it". No worries! I pour me a BIG glass and start drinking. It's not to bad. Another big gulp. I don't remember it having this salad taste. Another gulp, OK, I am not sure I like this after all. I look at the blender and there is still more in there. Now remember, I am in frugal mind set, so I pour the rest into the cup and challenge myself to drink it! Another big gulp...ewwww. Despite my vow, I just can't swallow any more.*
As I pour the rest down the drain, a green tint fills the sink. How pretty....*
2 hours later - my tummy was definitely not happy with what I did.*
The moral to this story: Adding more of a good thing isn't necessarily a good thing.

That's funny! I've never tried blending weird things together, juicing, or anything like that! I admire your sense of adventure.

Did you see the movie "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead"? It's on Hulu and it's about a guy that juiced for 60 days straight. I don't think I could ever drink the green stuff he created. :sick:

"You wont even taste it if you mix fruit in as well"
I think I've heard THAT one before. :)
