I throw a handful of spinach in my morning smoothie. It's easier than clicking on a NY Post link.

More like BORE-O-phyll, amirite?

Chlorophyll water is dumb.

Seriously, it's like everything we encounter when it comes to health quick-fixes is "how can I avoid eating more vegetables & exercising more often?"

Wasn't there a Darkwing Duck villain who ruined his life with something like this?  Don't people ever learn?

I'll take option C for getting chlorophyll: personal relations with Poison Ivy.

Maybe not great in terms of long term health prospects, but then I won't have to read a NYPost article.

I used to buy bulk Spirulina powder and put it into gelcaps by hand. but really only as a protein-source, although I imagine it's got some nutrients in there too. probably even chlorophyll.

but holee-carp does that stuff ever stink fishily. and I love fish, even fishy-fish.

After watching a special about matcha this weekend, Amazon is delivering some today. Totally getting a kick out of this thread.

wife didn't know what it was / would never have tried it... until Dunkies introduced a matcha "latte" along with some initial promotion where her occasional breakfast wrap would be free. so she tried it, and is hooked, lol.

so I bought a bag for her birthday. so these days, into the cocktail-shaker goes:
- ice, duh
- matcha
- milk (store-bought, shelf-stable, or full-fat powdered. they all work equally well)
- stevia

and then I abuse the fark out of the thing while singing a little song, to both keep-time and time it.

holy-fark does stainless steel ever burn after 60s to 90s of shaking.

I swear to god I read the headline as more Chernobyl in your diet... To which I was immediately confused as to why it was about leafy greens and not Carolina Reaper Peppers.

Because vegetables are yucky and exercising is haaard!

Every time I see something like this, I become more and more convinced the majority of people out there never mature past "whiny teenager".

Spinach leaves on a sandwich instead of lettuce. Done.  Or make a side of spinach with a meal.  Dab o' butter on top and it's great.

Mmmm.  Daal and curried spinach sounds awesome, too.  And some butter chicken and a stack of garlic naan.

Dammit, now I'm hungry.

'swhat I do whenever possible. which usually is only when we're out :( wife doesn't like raw spinach, so at home we usually only have fresh spring-mix or romaine. but she's fine with spinach in lasagna, palak/saag paneer, pizza, quiche, omelette, etc. so that's good.

Awesome. I am going to try the straight preparation first to see what it all about. I didn't buy one of those bamboo whisks but I have a small wire one that should do the job. I already drink a Carnation breakfast essential shake every morning so I have the milk to try the latte version.

And now I have this song stuck in my head

oh man, it's been a while since I listened to them. Tower of the Sun (both the Japanese and the English versions) and their Daydream Believer cover are probably my favorites, but that's a good one too!

I wish my wife liked curries, I'd make it at home.  Sadly she hates even the smell.  (To be fair, so did I 'til I tried the food many years ago and wondered where it had been all my life.  Now the smell is heavenly.  Unfortunately my wife can't handle the spicy stuff, and doesn't like the smell of curry, so I have take-out curries whenever I can.)

when I met the wife, she said at some point, "I hate curry!" - I was like, "huh, what have you tried?" - "well, one time, my brother made me try...curry!" - me: "that's like saying I hate soup or I hate sandwiches"

I convinced her to try samosa-chaat and malai-kofta (both very mild, I was lucky the place we went will do so) - and now she's hooked. that same place also makes a mean Hakka-style egg fried rice and she's addicted to that as well.

but yeah, if it's the actual spices she dislikes, that's too bad and can't be helped.

tintar: "I hate curry!"


I thought this too for a long time and the source was because my mother at one point tried to make something using McCormick's "Curry" powder and it was awful.

Later in life I thought I would give Indian food a try, and whatever I had at that restaurant was awful (turns out the place was just shiat food) and that gave me the impression that I was right. Years later an Indian coworker had me try some of her homemade curry against all arguments, and my mind was blown.

Apparently I had never had proper Indian food before and was told that anything listed as "curry powder" from the supermarket is trash.

Now I go to local Indian grocers and buy bags of spices for dirt cheap and make my own curry blends for various dishes.

Which brings me to a bit of advice...

Try to get her to eat Caribbean food. It's a fantastic way to ease people into more heavily spiced (but not hot) "curries".

Caribbean food is this fantastic fusion of Indian, Spanish, and French cuisine that has been perfected over like 300 years and everything is just amazing. You'll find a lot of similarities in a classic Caribbean "jerk" that you might in an Indian curry (minus masala I think) and you can pass it off without using the word "curry".

ooh, that's good advice for anyone. (although you may have meant that for Psychopusher?)

something like Doubles (which itself is basicamente a derivation of channa/chhole bhatura) - joint around the corner of my old place in Brooklyn did amazing ones, made-to-order as takeout. they also did fried conch, yum. they'll even put conch curry'n'stuff in rotis and bara for you.

This is really quite simple if you need more dietary chlorophyll:

Take a reasonably quantity, lets say 1/16th of a pound, of good quality-but-a-but-harsh cannabis, put it in a quart of cool to room temperature water overnight. The next day look at it but do nothing. On the SECOND day strain the plant material out, set aside to dry. The water, which will now look like tea, will contain most of the chlorophyll as well as the stuff that made you cough but almost none of the fun bits, which aren't water soluble. Drink this despite the nasty taste, that's just the price you pay for participating in stupid trendy shiatt.

Allow the reserved plant material to dry out of direct sunlight, it will be much smoother and will make you forget what the water tasted like.

Why are people so dumb about fads, nutrition, science and not believing in the latest miracle elixir?

Fixed that for myself...
