A Curious Case of a Cereal Eater and Miracle drink: ABC way to good health

 

20160118_174411_wm.jpg

Some lessons in life are learnt the hard way!! Especially when you chose to ignore your senses.

I recently fell sick after eating a bowl of cereal which wasn’t at the ‘best’ of it’s behavior( from a box which I had bought a day before). I was off blogging for more than a week,weak,sick and bored. One day,lying on my bed I almost hallucinated this faux courtroom scene.

!Just for Laughs!

A Faux Courtroom scene:

Case: A food blogger(defendant) falls sick after eating a bowl of cereal from a newly bought carton.

Judge: Mr. Prosecutor! You may present your case.

Prosecutor: Your honor! The defendant here is a Serial Cereal eater. She is accused of ignoring her senses and buying the cereal carton without checking its date. In this case the sense of vision. She is accused of falling sick and ignoring her blog.

Defense Attorney: Objection your honor! My defendant bought the brand new carton from the super market just a day before.

Prosecutor: The carton clearly mentions ‘Best before January 2016’

Defense Attorney: January is a long month your honor. It has 31 days in all.It could have easily meant 31st of january. In any case my defendant checked the date after she came home.

Prosecutor: This is a clear case of ignoring the most common sense called the ‘common sense’ your honor. Common sense would have asked the defendant to return the carton to the store from where it was bought.

Defense Attorney: I strongly object!!My client is a prudent person who cares about the world’s natural resources. Driving back and forth to the market would have burnt precious fuel.Saving the energy and fuel resources for the world’s future was top most on her mind.

Prosecutor: And what if some others had fallen sick.

Defense Attorney: My dear Sir! For your kind information the defendant is the only person in her house who is a cereal eater and she would never risk the health of any one else.

Prosecutor: What about the sense of smell Mr. Attorney. A food blogger must know the simple fact that what doesn’t smell right is definitely NOT right.

Defense Attorney: You have hit the nail on the head Mr.Prosecutor. Being a food blogger ,my client wanted to verify this very fact and prove to the world that what doesn’t smell right is definitely NOT right. She has risked her health for the noble cause.

Prosecutor: At the cost of the ‘blog’ Mr.Attorney the ‘blog’. One whole week of ignoring the blog.

At this point the defendant  raises her hand and asks to speak to the Judge.

Defendant: Your honor! I love my blog and I am the one who has suffered by staying away from my blog. I am the one who missed my friends and readers. I am sure they will vouch for me and stand as my witness.

Judge: After hearing both sides of the case the court acquits the defendant of all charges and asks her to return to blogging immediately. She is also asked to serve the community by posting a detox recipe for wasting our valuable time.

‘Mom!! Mom!! Wake up please. You did not finish your drink.’ my daughter is shaking me with one hand and handing over the freshly blended juice I had asked for before dozing off, with the other hand.

‘Uh,Oh..yeah sweetie..thanks’ I mumbled thankfully before sipping the deliciously healthy ABC drink.

Miracle drink as it is popularly called is a juice of

  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Beetroot
  • 1 Carrot

The tip here is to drink it immediately and keep the vegetables and apple organic. Do not add sugar.

    The imaginary courtroom was delightful. And it’s a fun coincidence of sorts. (I already had the first post ready and waiting) Next weekend I’m beginning a mini-series about using all the 5 senses in writing. Great minds think alike! 😀

      Though there are no particular rules, the best effect from this juice can be derived when taking in the morning on an empty stomach. I personally like to drink this juice at noon when there is still an hour to go for lunch.
