On a recent business trip to the HQ of my startup, I stumbled into a conversation with a few of my colleagues about the benefits of drinking green juice. Fast forward to me explaining my dietary restrictions and by restrictions, I really just mean bulking up on protein and vegetables, when I casually brought up the benefits of green juice. Two of my male colleagues then decided to intervene and suggest that green juice was actually bad for you and that the nutrients and benefits in which you believe, as a consumer drinking the green juice, is actually taken away almost entirely when you put the green vegetables through a juicer. They claim that eating 5lbs of vegetables through green juice, isn't any better than eating a serving of greens on your plate. I beg to differ.
A few minutes pass and one of my male colleagues calls me over to his desk. Apparently he has asked Google to fill in the blanks. When you type in "Juice is..." on Google, you'd be surprised to find that Google says that-
- "Juicing is bad."
- "Juicing is bad for you."
- "Juicing is expensive."
- "Juicing is wasteful."
Being my cheeky self, I respond with, "Well, Google may think those things, but my dear friend Dr. Oz believes that green juice is great for you." Some disbelief later, as we are all just sitting in our cubicles, I get a phone call. I answer in haste only to find that my wishes have been answered! "Hello? Dr. Oz? Oh, thanks man for calling me back. Yeah, yeah, I have some skeptics in my office here. Oh? Juicing is good for you? Green juice specifically? Thanks so much for clarifying. I'll let the skeptics here know. See you in New York!" [hangs up phone].
[Laugher] By golly, I sure showed them!
