Day 5: Don't Try this At Home!

Well, I decided to forego my yummy drink bases today for two reasons:

  1. We had a ton of stuff that really needed to be harvested from the garden.
  2. I was still on sugar overload from the camping trip
  3. I was still sleep deprived from the camping trip and could not therefore be trusted to actually think.
So I made what my son lovingly referred to as 'swamp water'

You don't want to know the recipe. You really don't want to make the recipe. But here it is:
  • 3 quarts random juice from whatever greens/herbs/weeds you find growing in your garden that may have bolted due to you being out of town 
  • 2 whole lemons
  • 1 lime
  • 3 inches of ginger root
Juice it all. Wait. Force yourself to drink it.

Let's just say it was bitter and bland, spicy and over sweet all at the same time. Like spit from a person doing every  Man V Food Hot Wings Challenge ever created.

Not recommended. Ever. Especially for convincing your children to drink freshly pressed juices.

Today's Menu:
  • Swamp Water

Swamp Water is awful.


  • Test anything before feeding to your kids
  • Liver Flushing isn't always pleasant
  • Better to live and let live than try to repair with Swamp Water
