A DAY WITHOUT ME: BROCCOLI IS THE NEW SPINACH
First we had a day without Mexicans.
They didn't go to work, and everyone noticed their absence.
They even made a movie about it.
And now we've gone AN ENTIRE WEEK without spinach due to the e-Coli outbreak.
No spinach in the Bam-Bam's pocket at Pockets; now it looks pal and wan.
Same for the already-mediocre tofu-veggie nori rolls at Trader Joe's.
No spinach in my usually-fabulous salads, which also look a bit pasty.
Gridlife couldn't order his favorite Greek omelette yesterday at the Cult, where it's made with Phil's free-range eggs, and had to settle on broccoli-and-cheddar.
Even Dorian Black stopped from going to Dona Torta for their wonderful veggie burrito because spinach is the primary ingredient. And he's not even anaemic.
Today I found myself looking for something -- ANYTHING -- green to add to my salads and comparing the nutritional value of French green beans and broccoli; for the record the latter has far more nutrients.
It's a rather sad substitute but it'll have to do.
One can't help but wonder what's next, though --
A month without Scrunchies?
