Our Smoothie Culture

I have a very specific opinion on smoothies. You may hate it; you may rant at me for it, but here goes.


We finally put kale…in all its crunchy, nutrient-dense glory…on the map and now? People blend it up with fruit into baby food and slurp it on the subway.


I get it. We are all busy, but this obsession we have with smoothies has left us wide open to be hoodwinked yet again by big food companies who just…can’t…wait to sell us one more thing that will leave us feeling less than spectacular.
