    Smothies are bad?

    Primal Fuel
    I had a person tell me smoothies are bad because grok didn't have blenders.

    He used the internet to tell me this.

    WHAT?!

    Smoothies are an ok option in a pinch, but I wouldn't make them part of my daily diet. We have teeth for a reason!

    I would think as long as the ingredients were primal- who cares.. we are more modern that grok was. Laws, Laws, Laws.. UGH! Bondage, bondage, bondage!!! sorry for the mini rant.

    I like smoothies, myself, but I suppose they're like salads: you can make them less good easily by putting in the wrong ingredients. I don't see how they can be necessarily bad, particularly if that's how you choose to take your veggies when eating the slab o' meat.

    One theory is that the carbs in them are digested more quickly, giving you a bigger insulin spike. Or that liquid calories in general are a bad idea because they don't fill you up as long as if you ate the same thing in solid form (this is true, liquid diets are used to increase the # of calories one can reasonably stand to ingest when "bulking up"). YMMV and it's a free country.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
