By definition: The process, real or perceived, of removing toxins from the body.
By definition: An upcoming album, by the hip hop artist Dr. Dre.
Clearly I’m highly anticipating the latter.
The former…? Yea, not so much… Nice dental work, Dr. Dre….
You see this word?
It scares me to my very core. When I think detox I picture no food or sweets of any kind for days. Complete deprivation of the very things that make my life worth living. I’m left to ingest vast quantities of greenish, bluish liquid in an attempt to remove toxins from my body – For days! I’ll be so hungry! Deprive a sista’ of food, and there’s no telling what I’ll do. I can hallucinate and wars could get started. Real wars – Post apocalyptic Mad Max aftermath type deals where cash is no longer king, Wall Street no longer calls the shots and we’d have to barter to have our steel toed boots cobbled.
No thank you… We don’t want that.
That scares me – I haven’t acquired enough skills to be bartered for by warriors.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for juicing; what I’m not for is juicing for like 7 days straight with no solids. I needs me some solids… A cookie… A protein… Something…
I want to detoxify my bod + be able to eat this:
And some of these:
I don’t just want to do this:
No way, Jose…
Enter: Kale Chips
Kale is the new food that’s raging the nation… It’s green… AND it’s got loads of good stuff.
Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, calcium; all vitamins essential for life. Kale has a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties. Kale is also a source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells.
Can we get on this? The new Super food whose natural detoxifying agents allow us to eat this:
Without feeling too much guilt… We can season up some of these:
And still enjoy the crappies out of life.
Now don’t be fooled, kale chips taste NOTHING like potato chips, yet the crunch and the slightly nutty flavor of a kale chip is highly addicting. You.Will.Not.Resist. I’ve eaten two bunches of kale chips in one sitting. I’ve eaten them while they’re still in the oven. Burned my hand….True life story…
I love this stuff. My kids love this stuff. The more we eat it, the more we love it – It makes the word
Seem a bit less daunting…
Kale… Who knew?
