You might be thinking, there are tons of similar websites out there and drinking green smoothies are not new to many people. So, why do I need to set up this site?
I am not going to make any assumptions here, but I personally feel that this whole idea is not very common in Singapore. At least, I don’t seem to know anyone else blending and drinking their greens like I do.
In addition, I find that a lot of people (including myself), became embarrassed to be drinking their green smoothies in public or at work. I get weird stares and disgusted looks all the time. So the best way is to hide our green smoothies in non-transparent bottles.
And that got me angry, at myself mostly.
Why should we be embarrassed to be doing something good for our bodies? Why should we hide our positivity? If people can walk around with their frappuccinos in their hands (and look cool), why can’t we?
When I first started blending my greens, I was really excited and started raving to many of my friends and colleagues. I even offered to blend for them.
Sad to say, I received many negative comments…
“Ewwww, you drink that green goo ?!”
“Oh man! You are so going to get diarrhoea!”
“It’s not good for you!”
I totally understand their rejections and I know many of you feel the same way. I must admit, it’s not a conventional method to take your greens and the output may not look pretty. Also, if you are not a regular salad-eater, it may be rather intimidating for you.
Therefore, I want to put up this site to share ideas, information and recipes with everyone. Going forward, I would like to try using some tropical fruits (durians maybe? lol) & veggies that we can find locally, easily.
I hope that this site will help create some awareness, regardless how small it may be. I set to inspire and be inspired.
And, I do hope that one day people chug their greens on Singapore streets openly and this will eventually, be the coolest thing to do!
Chug it !
