Welcome to a very sad installment of What To Eat For Lunch. I blame Chile for having such amazing wine. Desperate for something cold, wet and watery to soothe what ailed me this morning and nowhere near ready for food, I remembered I had a bottle of this stuff in my fridge, an impulse buy on a late-night bodega run. I was like “What the hell is this?” bought it, shoved it in the back of my fridge and remembered it only when I was as parched as the Sahara.
Ahhmigo, like many beverages you can buy nowadays, boasts 64 ingredients. Rather than artificial colors, sweeteners or any of that other great stuff, those 64 things are all some form of “fruits, sprouts, grasses, vegetables, flowers, medicinal mushrooms, sea plants and unique herbs.”
Medicinal mushrooms? Okay! All this healthy almost totally organic business is packed separately into a “pop cap” you dispense straight into the bottle when you’re ready to drink it, which preserves the freshness and maximizes the efficacy of the alfalfa grasses and bladderwrack and…stuff. So that’s what I did — popped the button, watched in nauseous horror as a green deluge settled slowly to the bottom of the bottle, took a deep breath and chugged.
Gross. Like a watered down wheatgrass shot. Kept it down, kept it down, organic and GMO-free, we’re okay. And in five minutes, I felt a little better. Thanks, Ahhmigo!
I should be ready for actual lunch around 3. I’ll be sure to let you know what it was.
