Why are people turned off by naturally green colored foods and drinks? Every time I enjoy my green smoothie at work I hear: "ewww...what's that?" "That looks like baby food" and "That does not look good". Now, home training should have taken care of making negative comments about other people's food...but I still get an ear full.
What is it about green food that turns people off? I really am curious...share your thoughts!
Now when you're talking about artificially colored green stuff: it's all good. M&Ms, Skittles, Jolly Ranchers, Now and Laters, jelly beans, Popsicles, etc.

Naturally green foods are in the top 5 best foods you should eat. Here are some that I love:
- green apple
- swiss chard
- most herbs (cilantro and basil being in the top two)
- green beans (Chinese style w/lots of garlic)
Other green foods include:
honey dew melon
green split peas
Whew!! And there's plenty more!! A special green treat for everyone! :)
Green = life.......we love to see the green leaves and the green grass when spring time hits. If you're a gardener it's exciting to see the first speck of green shoot up from the brown earth. Green = growth. Brown grass in your yard or yellow leaves on a house plant aren't fresh and appear to be weak or sick. Green foods = growth, life, health, and strength....remember Popeye's biceps? It was that spinach!

As a whole green foods provide:
- vitamins and minerals
- fiber (keeps it regular!!)
Also if you are going to cook the green food, make sure it stays that way: green, crispy and good for the soul! Raw is better though!
I think money is the only green substance that people have no issue with. Mean green baby!
Eat more naturally green foods folks! Green = Life! Let's live the best one we can.
Now.... finish your peas!! Please!
Peace and blessings!
