I never really stop to think as to how fortunate I am. I was in SF over the weekend visiting Jason and we went to a Korean mom and pop shop that makes the most amazing kimchi fried rice. We got 2 orders of it, except mine had brown rice. But when I saw the sign that said, “Brown rice, $1 additional,” it really hit me as to how economically hard it can be to eat healthy.

During grad school, I did so much reading on the obesity epidemic that happens here in the US, which really is a severe public health crisis. Of course there are so many factors that come into play here, like eating too much and exercising too little, but a huge factor that plays here is the fact the healthy food costs more than junk food.

That being said, I am incredibly grateful that I have both the accessibility and affordability to consume healthy foods, like this green smoothie. It may be a bit daunting with the whole spinach situation but it has such a mild flavor that you won’t even know that it’s there. Jason took a sip of it and was really shocked that spinach was in this at all!

  5. When you say an orange chopped do you mean to leave the peel on or take the peel off?
