My teenage daughter is always trying new diets. It seems to be the thing to do among kids her age. The diet of the week is called a Paleo Diet. Supposedly, it's all the natural stuff humans are supposed to consume. She read the list of foods and ingredients needed. Since it was all healthy, I gave her the go ahead to try it.
Day one came, and on the breakfast menu, was a smoothie made of coconut milk, fresh berries and peanut butter. She pulled out the blender, dumped in the ingredients, and pressed the "blend" button. A couple minutes later, she had a brownish-purplish concoction.
She poured it in a glass and took a sip. "OMG. This is awful!" (Yes, she literally did say, O M G.)
"It can't be that bad," I said. "Let me try some."
I poured a little in my glass. And let me tell you, she was right. It was horrible! I don't know what the problem was: Bad berries. Bad coconut milk. But it was so bitter, that even I had to discard it.
"You know what this is?" my daughter said. "Death juice!"
Needless to say, death juice is no longer on the Paleo Diet menu!
